Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is one of the many services at Perfect Smile that we offer to make our patients as comfortable as possible.

If you are looking into Sedation Dentistry consider the following questions:


Does your busy schedule make it hard to come in for multiple appointments for your needed treatment?


Are you very fearful or anxious about dental work?


Do you have very sensitive teeth?


Do you have a strong gag reflex?


In the past, has it been difficult for dentists to get you numb enough to be comfortable?

If you said “yes” to any of these, then Sedation Dentistry may be the answer!

Nitrous oxide (laughing gas), relaxants, and oral sedation options are available to make your visit more comfortable. Many people with minor anxiety choose to use nitrous oxide during their routine dental procedures. Since it is completely reversible, you’ll be able to drive yourself home.

If you have moderate anxiety, the Perfect Smile team can prescribe a relaxant for you to take before your visit, (with someone else to drive you home). If you are very anxious or have limited time for multiple visits, you should consider oral sedation dentistry.

Working together, you and your dentist can choose the appropriate steps to make your dental visit as safe and comfortable as possible, and to help you keep a healthy smile.
