For some patients, being sedated during their dental appointment is important and a necessity. If you feel that you need assistance with relaxing during your visit, in most cases, we’re able to provide medicine that completely relaxes you, allowing you to rest comfortably during your visit while we care for your dental needs. We complete as much treatment as possible, after which you will regain alertness, feeling comfortable and refreshed.
We also provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) as an option to help you feel more at ease. This safe and easy dental sedation option helps you get comfortable, and can be especially helpful for children and adolescents who experience dental anxiety. Laughing gas can also make dental visits easier and provide a better experience for patients with mental or physical impairments.
When we explore the best sedation dentistry options for you, we will review your health history, including medications you are taking and habits such as alcohol consumption and smoking. We take all factors into careful consideration when planning for your treatment, and we’ll go through the proper preparation steps with you prior to your dental sedation visit at our Cornelius dentist office. Your comfort and safety are our first priority.
