Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Take Advantage of Our Sedation Dentistry Options

Local Anesthetic

With a local anesthetic, a medication is injected into the gum tissues of the specific area of the mouth being worked on. When it takes effect, your cheeks, chin and tongue may feel heavy, which means the anesthetic is working to block the nerve signals that trigger the pain response. The result is a virtually pain-free dental procedure.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a small pill taken approximately one hour prior to the start of your appointment that creates a calm, euphoric feeling. This type of sedation dentistry helps you feel relaxed and comfortable when you arrive to our office for your appointment. While oral sedation is a relatively harmless sedation dentistry option, we do recommend a companion bring you to and from your appointment for safety.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation, or “laughing gas,” is a heavier sedation dentistry option typically recommended for more complex cases. The effects are only felt for the duration of your treatment, and Dr. Givens has control over your level of comfort the entire time, making it both safe and effective.

Conscious Sedation

Conscious sedation combines a sedative and an anesthetic to help you relax and block pain throughout your dental procedure. Most patients stay awake with this level of sedation dentistry but it is recommended you have a companion bring you home after treatment.
