Sedation Dentistry

We understand that some patients experience anxiety and phobia related to dental treatment.
Your safety and comfort are our top priorities at Lake Dental Care and we want your experience with us to be positive. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry to keep you relaxed and stress-free during your visit. If you think sedation dentistry is the right option for you, give us a call today to learn more.

The Benefits of Nitrous Sedation

If you are feeling apprehensive about your procedure, our dentists may use Nitrous Oxide, commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, to keep you safe and calm. When nitrous oxide takes effect, it gives the patient a feeling of euphoria and relaxation. You’ll be awake during your procedure, but you’ll be calm and stress-free. Many patients also find nitrous sedation beneficial because it wears off quickly, so you’ll be able to enjoy the rest of your day as you normally would once your treatment is complete.

Convenient Care with Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is another option for patients who may feel anxious about their visit. This sedative is taken in pill form before your visit, and it induces a deep state of relaxation. You’ll be relaxed and safe during your treatment, and you’ll have nothing to worry about in the capable hands of our skilled doctors. Unlike nitrous oxide, this sedative takes a bit longer to wear off, so you’ll need to arrange a ride home from the dentist after your procedure. To learn more about oral conscious sedation, give us a call or visit our office today.
