With sedation dentistry from Sierra Dental, you can receive the highest quality dental care in a stress-free environment.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry or conscious sedation, is a type of dental treatment that uses medication to help anxious patients relax during their appointment. We use this method to ensure the patient’s comfort and safety while providing any necessary treatments.

The most common form of sedation used by our team is nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas). Nitrous oxide helps reduce fear and anxiety because it has an immediate calming effect—allowing us to provide quality treatment without worrying about putting our patients into uncomfortable situations.

The purpose of sedation dentistry is to help patients who have dental anxiety or phobia, difficulty sitting still for long periods of time, or a strong gag reflex. It is also used for patients who need to undergo multiple or complex dental procedures in one sitting.

The goal of sedation dentistry is to provide a comfortable and stress-free experience for the patient while they receive dental care.

How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

Sedation dentistry involves the use of medications to help patients relax during dental procedures.

There are several different types of sedation that can be used, including:

  1. Oral sedation: This involves taking a pill or liquid medication orally to help patients relax. The medication can be taken before the procedure or at the dental office.
  2. Inhaled sedation: This involves inhaling a gas, such as nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas), to help patients relax. The gas is administered through a mask placed over the nose.
  3. IV sedation: This involves administering the medication through a vein, allowing the dental team to control the level of sedation.
  4. General anesthesia: This involves putting the patient to sleep using medication administered through an IV.

During the procedure, the patient will be monitored by a dental team member trained in administering and monitoring sedation. The goal of sedation dentistry is to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental procedure.
