Sedation Dentistry

At Avenue Dental, we understand some of our patients have anxiety about visiting the dentist. It could be a concern about dental needles, or certain procedures, or the result of a past traumatic dental experience. If you have concerns about pain relief or staying calm during a procedure, make an appointment to talk about it with our dentists. We’re happy to answer any of your concerns and discuss whether sedation dentistry is right for you.

IV Sedation Dentistry

Intravenous (IV) sedation administers sedation drugs through an IV allowing you to reach a deeper level of sedation, where you won’t be aware of the procedure nor remember it when you wake up. This option offers nervous or anxious patients a relaxing solution for moderate to severe dental procedures.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous oxide is also commonly referred to as “laughing gas”. The effects of nitrous oxide are quick to set in and allow you to feel relaxed during dental procedures. When the procedure is over, nitrous oxide is traded for pure oxygen, which helps the effects wear off within minutes afterwards.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation requires a prescription from your dentist in advance of the procedure. Our dental professionals will direct you to take a pill before coming if for your appointment and to pre-arrange for someone to drop you off and pick you up from your appointment. Oral sedation is a safe option for you if you feel nervous or anxious about complex, dental procedures.
