Sedation Dentistry in Simons Island, GA

For some patients undergoing dental treatment is like a cakewalk, and for others, it is the other way around. If you belong to the latter category, we will use sedation dentistry and ensure that you do not feel anxious or fearful during your dental procedure. We use different forms of sedation for the treatments like root canal therapy, tooth extraction, periodontal therapy, and others.

  • Nitrous Oxide

This mild sedative is a brilliant option for all patients suffering from dental anxiety before their procedure. Also known as laughing gas, we administer this nitrogen-oxygen mixture to your nose through a mask. You will experience a euphoric sensation within minutes as you breathe in the gas.

The use of nitrous oxide helps you feel calm and composed throughout your treatment. This approach is safe and effective, lasting for a few minutes after removing the mask. You can drive home safely after the appointment.

  • Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation helps manage dental anxiety and makes you comfortable throughout your treatment. When you consult us for the procedure, we ask you about your dental fears and administer oral sedation to combat them.

Oral sedation is a type of conscious sedation we recommend to make sure you have a comfortable experience during the dental procedure. We offer it in the form of a pill, which is easy to consume. As oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, it doesn't make you sleepy during the procedure. This form of sedation also produces an essential amnesic effect for a more comfortable experience. When compared to other types, it is more affordable.

Upon finding you as a suitable candidate for this sedation, we will give you a pill to relax. We will also give you instructions on how to take it. Ensure to follow them so that the effects of this sedation remain as expected. We will also ask you to bring a family member or friend to drive you home after the appointment.

Oral sedation makes you feel extremely drowsy. In some cases, you may not even remember the details of your procedure.
