Sedation Dentistry

Dental fear is common, and at Arden Dental Center, we understand that. We also know that almost half of Americans suffer from some level of dental anxiety. Many people skip their dental visits or essential dental procedures out of their fear. But now, with different methods of sedation dentistry, we can help our patients receive the dental care they require without any anxiety. 

Our dedicated team recognizes the importance of making your visit to the dentist an extremely relaxing and pain-free experience. Through sedation dentistry, our goal is to make you feel comfortable and calm during your dental visit so that it will be easy for the dentist to perform the procedure more efficiently, shortening the treatment time. For those with severe dental anxiety, sedation dentistry is like a blessing as these patients often delay their treatment or avoid meeting their dentist due to their fears. This delay can result in untreated oral conditions over time, leading to further complications. However, with the help of sedation dentistry, such patients can overcome this debilitating phobia and receive timely treatment, thus improving both their oral and overall health in return.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

Arden Dental Center

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation includes sedatives and pain relievers to make the patients fall into a relaxed state of consciousness. This will help avoid any pain or discomfort.

Arden Dental Center

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide, or "laughing gas," is inhaled through a mask. The gas will put the patient in a calm state and keep them relaxed. Its effect wears off soon after the treatment.

Arden Dental Center

IV Sedation

IV or intravenous sedation is a type of sedation administered to the patient to get rid of their dental anxiety and keep them calm while the treatment is performed.
