What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation is not a separate dental procedure, but a perk available to you during your treatment visits. It will help remove tension from your muscles, ease your anxiety, and allow you to remain relaxed throughout the entirety of your appointment.

This level of relaxation can even help us to get your dental work done in fewer sittings.

Patients are relaxed and anxiety free thanks to sedation dentistry near Riverview and Apollo Beach.Sedation is offered in several different forms.

  • IV Sedation | This form of dental sedation is intravenous. Before your appointment, we will administer the sedative to you through this IV, which will take effect quickly. If you choose this form of sedation, you will need to arrange a ride home from your appointment.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation | Needles aren’t for everyone. Oral conscious sedation is a great alternative that will allow you to receive all the benefits of deep sedation without the IV. It is administered in the form of a pill which you will be given about a half an hour before your appointment begins. You will need a ride to and from your appointment.
  • Laughing Gas | One of the simplest ways to relax during your dental treatment is laughing gas. This gas not only works to ease your muscle tension, but actually acts as a natural anti-anxiety measure.
  • Best of all, laughing gas leaves your system almost immediately after finishing. You’ll be able to safely and legally drive yourself home from your appointment.
