Different Types of Sedation Dentistry

Community Shores Dental offers multiple types of sedation dentistry options for our Norton Shores, MI patients. We will determine the best sedation solutions to meet your needs, including:

  • Nitrous Oxide – Conscious sedation utilizes a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen, or laughing gas. It's a non-invasive, safe way to help patients stay fully conscious and completely relaxed.
  • Oral Sedation – Oral sedation is typically taken in pill form about an hour before your procedure. We prescribe a benzodiazepine to affect the parts of the brain that control anxiety and fear. Once the oral sedation goes into effect, you will feel calm and relaxed.
  • IV Sedation – IV sedation is sometimes called sleep dentistry. IV sedation is administered straight into your veins through an intravenous tube. Patients feel relaxed quickly and may be partially conscious or unconscious during the procedure.
  • General Anesthesia – General anesthesia puts patients to sleep for dental procedures. We use an IV sedative with more intense anesthesia. During the procedure, patients are entirely unconscious.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is the perfect solution for many patients that won't step foot into the dental chair without sedation. Sedation dentistry offers many benefits, including:
  • Helps control the gag reflex
  • Little to no memory of the dental procedure
  • Feeling of comfort in the dental chair
  • Reduces the amount of time for extensive procedures
  • Offers the dentist more control for a successful procedure
