Sedation Dentistry

Cardinal Dental is thrilled to offer a wide range of Dental Services to our valued patients, and one of our most popular and beneficial services is Sedation Dentistry. Our team of experienced dentists is committed to helping our patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental appointments. It is our priority to meet our patient’s individual needs, and we will work closely with each patient to determine the best course of treatment. If fear or anxiety has been preventing you from getting the dental care you need, our sedation options can help you relax and ensure a comfortable experience.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry is a safe and effective technique that allows patients to undergo dental procedures while in a deeply relaxed or even sleep state. Sedation has been especially beneficial for many of our patients who experience dental anxiety, have difficulty getting numb, have a gag reflex, or need more complex dental treatment requiring longer appointments. At Cardinal Dental we offer three forms of dental sedation:

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

This is meant to slightly relax patients with minimal anxiety.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Patients take a sedative pill before their dental treatment. You will be conscious enough during your appointment to communicate but most patients remember very little about their visit and feel afterward like they took a little nap and woke up with everything done! This is the most common form of sedation because it is so safe and effective.

IV Moderate Sedation

This is a deeper form of sedation where medication is administered through an IV. This allows us to control the level of sedation and for individual patients who may require more medication to feel perfectly comfortable. This type of sedation is often used for more complex procedures like wisdom teeth removal, or implant placement but it can be used for any procedure.

Why Use Us for Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry is an excellent option for patients for the following reasons:

Overcoming Dental Fears and Anxiety

Dental phobia is a common issue that prevents many individuals from seeking proper oral care. With Sedation Dentistry, you can finally conquer your dental fears and anxiety, allowing our highly trained dental professionals to perform the necessary procedures with ease. You will remain calm and relaxed throughout the entire process.

Comfort During Lengthy or Complex Treatments

For patients who require extensive dental work, Sedation Dentistry provides the advantage of relaxation and comfort during longer procedures. This ensures that you experience minimal discomfort or fatigue while your dentist works efficiently to restore your oral health.

Pain-Free Dental Experiences

Our sedation techniques are designed to minimize any discomfort or pain you may feel during your dental treatment. By numbing your senses or allowing you to sleep through the procedure, you can enjoy a pain-free and stress-free dental experience.

Greatly Improved Appointment Efficiency

With Sedation Dentistry, it is possible to combine multiple treatments into a single session. This streamlines the process and reduces the number of appointments required, saving you time and effort.
