Sedation Dentistry

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.

Cornelius Dentist

Hear What Our Patients Have to Say

We aim to provide efficient, affordable, comfortable dental care and according to our patients, we are succeeding! Don’t just take our word for it – here’s what some of our current patients have to say!

“Lakeside Dental’s, Dr. Matthew Harrison is highly skilled in his profession. Patient anxiety is at rest with his gentle nature and wisdom. I can say with complete confidence, Dr. Harrison’s office is the best office I have been to in years and I’ve been to many being a senior citizen. His entire team is efficient, courteous and welcoming. How fortunate we are to have his office in Cornelius!!”


“We relocated to the area over a year ago. I saw two different dentists who told me I had 5 or 6 cavities and would need at least one root canal. This seemed excessive, as I had not had any issues with my teeth. When I saw Dr. Harrison at Lakeside Dental, he only noted two cavities that needed to be filled, and said he didn’t believe a root canal would be necessary. To my great relief, his instincts were correct. I was in and out in just over 30 minutes and he had filled both cavities without a root canal! After previous dental work, I’d had problems with my bite which took several additional visits to correct. I am pleased to say my teeth fit together nicely and I have no issues with my bite! The office called the next day to check on me, which is a great example of their dedication to the customer experience. Needless to say, my family will all be changing dentists soon to Lakeside Dental!”


“The high tech check-in procedure made it quick and painless. I got the feeling they realized I’m not a fan of the dentist chair so they made the experience as good as it could be. Also there was an opportunity for them to “run up a tab” but they told me my issue may just need time to calm down. A friend who is an endodontist referred me there and I’m glad I went. Clean, honest, and state of the art equipment make for a good experience so that’s why I’ve given them a 5 star rating”
