Can i be sedated
During my appointment?
Yes! If you are free of any health issues that would prevent sedation from being administered, you can be sedated during any treatment at our office. Many patients with dental anxiety choose sedation because it helps them stay calm throughout their procedure. However, sedation is also often chosen by those with other issues like a strong gag reflex or a fear of needles.
Gentle, Effective Sedation
with nitrous oxide
Nitrous oxide is also known as “laughing gas.” This is because it delivers a feeling of happiness and euphoria, which helps you stay calm and comfortable during your treatment. Dr. Cassleman administers the gas using a special nose mask. Laughing gas wears off after about 5 minutes and has few side effects, so you can even drive yourself home after your treatment.
Relax in the dentist's chair
with oral sedation
Oral sedation is taken in pill form about an hour before your procedure. This medication will make you feel groggy and calm, and you might even fall asleep during your procedure. However, if you choose oral conscious sedation, you cannot drive yourself home after your appointment, since the effects don’t wear off immediately. Make sure to a ride home from our office! You may also feel more groggy, or experience side effects like a headache or nausea, in some cases.
of sedation dentistry
Sedation dentistry has a number of great benefits. These options make it easier for patients with dental anxiety to get the oral care they need and it can reduce feelings of fear and anxiousness before dental surgery. Sedation can even allow Dr. Cassleman to work faster because patients who are sedated will not react as strongly to various sensations throughout the procedure. This is particularly true with younger children, who may have a tendency to squirm and difficulties sitting still for long periods of time.
