Relax With Our Dental Sedation Options

If you have dental anxiety, there could be several different causes. We’ve found that working to understand the origin of your discomfort helps to overcome the issue.

In some cases, our patients don’t even realize a past experience is the source of their anxiousness because the event happened so long ago they don’t recall it until much later in life. For others, the sounds and smells of the dental office, or any doctor’s office for that matter, triggers a fight-or-flight response.

No matter the source of your fear, we can help relieve it with dental sedation. Because every patient is unique, we offer three levels of sedation for you to choose from. In some cases, we may combine two forms to achieve your ideal level of comfort. So you’ll know what to expect, we’ll discuss your options with you.

Nitrous oxide dental sedation, often referred to as “laughing gas,” is a gas mixed with oxygen that quickly produces a calming, mild euphoria when inhaled through a small mask. You can drive yourself to and from your dental appointment.

Oral conscious sedation, the mid-level sedation we offer, is provided in the form of a pill that you take before your appointment so you can feel relaxed and fully calm before you even arrive. You’ll need to get a trusted friend or family member to bring you to your appointment and take you home.

IV sedation, the strongest form of sedation we offer, produces an almost dream-like state in a matter of moments. This is a great option for patients with high levels of dental anxiety or those that need extensive dental work done. You’ll need someone to drive you home from our Kansas City, MO dental office.
