What is sedation dentistry?

When you undergo dental treatment with sedation, your dentist will administer a drug before or during the dental procedure that should help you feel calm and relaxed.

What types of sedation options do you offer?

At Cornerstone Dentistry, we offer IV sedation and nitrous oxide sedation during treatment, or you can take an oral sedative ahead of time to help ease the anxiety associated with any dental treatment.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is also used as a sedation option for patients. Many patients also do well with oral medications and/or nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

We offer nitrous oxide for patients who want to stay relaxed during their appointment. Please notify our office if you would like more information before your next appointment.

Who can benefit from sedation dentistry?

Sedation treatment is possible for the following reasons

If you identify with or have experienced any of those problems in the past, talk to us about dental sedation. Please keep in mind that dental sedation is not usually offered for routine procedures like dental cleanings, dental exams, or X-rays.

IV Sedation

Many of our patients have found IV sedation to be the nicest way to ease their dental procedures. It allows them to completely relax while their dentistry is performed.

You might be a good candidate for IV sedation if:

  • Dentistry is very stressful for you
  • You require a surgical procedure such as wisdom tooth removal
  • You are undergoing a long or complex procedure
  • You have a hard time keeping your mouth open
  • You need multiple procedures done in one visit

After Your Sedation Appointment

For our patients' safety, our policy is to prohibit driving for at least 24 hours after the procedure.

Please ensure that a friend or family member is available to drive you home after your procedure.

In general, we recommend that you allow a full 24 hours after your procedure for the full effects of the sedation to wear off.

Take the rest of the day off of work or school, and rest at home.
