Sedation Dentistry

We use advanced sedation dentistry for a wide variety of in-house services. Our goal is to ensure you are comfortable, calm and relaxed through any dental treatment or dental procedure. Our team will work closely with you to assess what fears you may have and determine a treatment option that feels comfortable for you.

The Purpose of Dental Sedation

Dental sedation is a medical treatment that helps to reduce physical pain and anxiety during dental procedures. This makes the entire experience more comfortable and helps our staff perform their duties better. We offer dental sedation in different forms including local anesthesia, laughing gas and oral conscious sedation.

Laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, is a minimal form of sedation that is administered through a small mask. It combines nitrous oxide and oxygen to help you feel relaxed during the procedure.

Oral sedation is a moderate form of sedation, depending on the dosage. You will take a pill orally about an hour before the treatment. This will make you feel drowsy and relaxed but it won’t put you to sleep.

  • What is laughing gas and what does it do?

    Laughing gas, also known as Nitrous Oxide, is a colorless and odorless gas that is commonly used as a local sedation method, particularly in dentistry. It is known for its quick action and safe reversibility, making it a widely considered safe dental sedation method.

  • What type of anesthesia are used for dental work?

    There are three common types of anesthesia that are used in dental procedures, namely local anesthesia, IV sedation, and general anesthesia. Local anesthesia involves the injection of a numbing medication directly into the area that needs treatment, usually the gums surrounding an affected tooth. On the other hand, general anesthesia produces a much deeper level of unconsciousness that usually results in no memory of the procedure. This type of anesthesia is typically used for more complex procedures such as dental implants or tooth extraction. Finally, IV sedation is a deeper form of anesthesia that induces brief sedation with very little memory of the surgery.

  • How much does laughing gas cost?

    Our goal is to offer our patients in Winter Springs, FL high-quality dental care that is also affordable. To ensure your comfort during your visit, we provide laughing gas for procedures. The out-of-pocket cost for any procedure will depend on your insurance coverage at the time of the procedure.
