If you experience anxiety and fear while visiting the dentist, you are not alone. For anxious patients, Smile Studio Dental has many options to help you relax and feel comfortable during your visit. With sedation dentistry, Dr. Eli Janabi can increase your comfort levels and give you a more positive dental experience.
Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to help you feel relaxed and calm during your appointment at our practice. Before providing you with any form of sedation, our dentist will meet with you to discuss your concerns, anxieties, and fears. We will also review your medical history and dental needs, and discuss other relevant factors. This will help us determine the best sedation treatment for you.
There are three types of sedation dentistry that we may recommend:
- Nitrous Oxide – also known as laughing gas, this sedative is inhaled to produce a relaxed, euphoric sensation.
- Oral Conscious Sedation – if you receive oral sedation, our dentist will provide you with medication (usually a pill or liquid) before your treatment so that you will already feel relaxed when you arrive at our office.
- IV Sedation – this form of sedation is administered intravenously (directly into your bloodstream) to provide you with complete relaxation.
