We, at Pilsen Smiles, understand that some individuals avoid the dentist out of fear. Fortunately, there are different methods to put those fears to rest and allow for a smooth and relaxing experience.

Sedation may be right for you in the following instances:

  • Dental Anxiety

  • Dental Phobia

  • Low Pain Tolerance

  • Sensitive Teeth

  • Complex Dental Issues

  • Having Several Procedures In One Day

If receiving any form of sedation medication, you must be accompanied by another person to drive you home.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Often called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a form of sedation dentistry that produces a “feel good effect.” It is provided during dental procedures to relieve dental anxiety. Nitrous Oxide is administered through a mask placed over the nose. Your dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive and usually wears off quickly.

Oral-Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is another popular technique for dental anxiety that causes few side effects. The prescribed oral medication is taken before your appointment causing a relaxed and drowsy feeling.
