At Smiles Dental, we understand that many people feel anxious or nervous about visiting the dentist. We strive to do all we can help you feel more comfortable during your time with us. We have designed our Signature Anxiety-Free Services to help you feel at ease, which includes sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry involves using sedative techniques to help you have a more relaxing dental experience. Dr. Wilkinson, Dr. Mistry, and Dr. Jardine are pleased to offer three main types of sedation dentistry in Camas, Washington:
- Nitrous oxide – Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a sedative gas that you simply inhale during your treatment to help you feel more relaxed. This is a mild form of sedation that wears off within just a few minutes after we stop the flow of gas.
- Oral sedation – This type of sedation involves taking an oral medication before coming to our office for your appointment. By the time of your visit with our dentists, you will feel calm and relaxed.
- IV sedation – IV (intravenous) sedation enables Dr. King and Dr. Jardine to provide the sedation more quickly, and we can also easily control the level of sedation to ensure that you stay comfortable.
If you believe sedation dentistry may be the answer you need for a more enjoyable appointment, we invite you to contact our office today for more information. We are dedicated to providing you with an exceptional experience each time you visit us!
