Imagine undergoing a dental treatment like an extraction or root canal and not feeling any pain or discomfort. At Wainright & Wassel DDS, we are pleased to make this possible through our safe and effective sedation dentistry services.

If you are fearful or anxious about being at the dentist’s office, have a bad gag reflex, or have difficulty sitting for long periods of time or getting and staying numb from anesthetics, you could benefit from sedation dentistry at our office.

How Sedation Dentistry Works

If you opt for sedation dentistry, you will take some medication before bed on the night before your sedation visit as well as in the morning of your visit. Someone will need to drive you to our office since you will not be able to drive yourself. Once you arrive to our office, we’ll escort you to the dental chair for your procedure.

At this point, you will feel relaxed yet alert. Our dentists may decide to amplify your sedation with nitrous oxide or laughing gas until you are completely relaxed and comfortable. We will not begin the procedure until we are sure you are comfortable.

Once the procedure is over, you will have no memory of undergoing it, no sense of time, smell, or, sound, and no fear or anxiety. Countless patients in our office have taken advantage of sedation dentistry so they can receive the dental work they require without feeling nervous or anxious.
