Sedation Dentistry

Dentistry causes many people to suffer from anxiety and stress. Some of those patients even forgo dental care just to avoid the time in the chair.

There’s a better way to receive dental work at Center Point Dental! If you find yourself feeling panicky at the thought of an upcoming cleaning or procedure, you need to know that we can deliver safe, comfortable relaxation in our office. We offer laughing gas and IV sedation to alleviate your anxiety and allow you to get the dental attention you need.

Ready to enjoy a more confident and healthy smile? It’s as easy as scheduling a free consultation with our compassionate dentists. Doctor Flaherty want to help you discover a more comfortable kind of dentistry!

Laughing Gas

This breathable gas makes patients feel calmer and more at ease. It can even reduce sensitivity. For this relaxing treatment, before we start any of our dental work, we’ll put a small mask over your nose for you to breathe through during your appointment. Laughing gas takes effect almost immediately and will help you relax the whole time you are breathing it in.

Laughing gas also wears off quickly and doesn’t require patients to arrange a ride with someone beforehand. Patients who choose laughing gas sedation can drive themselves to and from their appointment.

IV Sedation Dentistry

IV sedation involves administering a sedative through the vein. The medication works quickly and the patient does not have to do anything outside the office. Our dentists will closely monitor the patient’s vitals and adjust the level of sedation as needed.

Benefits of IV sedation include:

  • Offers a deeper level of sedation.
  • Works quickly.
  • Fast recovery time.
  • Works even for severe anxiety.
  • Is safe for children.
  • Reduces or eliminates memory of the appointment.
  • Diminishes gag reflex.
  • Keeps you conscious, but feeling as though you are in a light state of sleep.

Relaxation and Safety for Your Child

We also offer IV sedation for children who are anxious or those who need extra help during their dental appointment. Dental procedures can be completed safely and painlessly with IV sedation. Our specialists are qualified and experienced in administering IV sedation to young patients.
