Sedation Dentistry

We use sedation dentistry to make sure that you do not feel any anxiety during the medical procedure. Dr. Suzanne Mericle accepts all insurance plans, CareCredit and offers a VIP savings program for patients without insurance. Call the team at Suzanne Mericle today at 912-638-3559 for more information about sedation dentistry in St. Simons Island, Georgia, and to schedule your initial visit with our caring dentist and team.

Nitrous Oxide

Our caring dentist may recommend nitrous oxide to help you receive your care more easily. This mild sedative is an excellent option for individuals who suffer from dental anxiety or fear. To set up an appointment with Dr. Suzanne Mericle and learn more about the benefits of nitrous oxide in St. Simons Island, Georgia, please call Suzanne Mericle today at 912-638-3559.

Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from nitrous oxide (N2O) sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the nitrous oxide, you will experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe: the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.

Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our dentist and team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!

Oral Conscious Sedation

Dr. Suzanne Mericle provides oral conscious sedation to help you manage dental anxiety and feel comfortable while receiving treatment. We are committed to helping you feel at ease and receive the care you need without stress or discomfort. Call Suzanne Mericle today at 912-638-3559 to schedule your consultation with our dentist and find out if oral sedation in St. Simons Island, Georgia, is right for you.

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation that we may recommend to ensure that you have a comfortable experience each time you visit our office. Administered in pill form, oral sedation is simple and easy to use. Because oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, you will remain awake during the treatment, but you will feel more relaxed and at ease. There are many other benefits to sedation dentistry, including:

  • With oral sedation, you simply need to take a pill. It is quick and easy to use.
  • It produces the necessary amnesic effect for a comfortable experience.
  • Oral sedation typically costs less than other forms of sedation.

If you and our dentist determine that oral sedation is right for you, you will be prescribed a pill that will help you relax. You will also receive instructions to take the pill before your scheduled appointment; be certain to follow the specific instructions included with your pill. It is important that you have a family member or friend drive you to and from your appointment to provide maximum safety to yourself and others. When you arrive at our office, you will be awake but extremely relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for you to not remember all of the details of your appointment.

If you suffer from dental anxiety, have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past or simply feel nervous about your treatment, sedation dentistry can help you feel more at ease. Sedation dentistry is also a good choice for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have an extremely sensitive gag reflex.
