Grand Rapids Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry

If the thought of visiting a dentist is frightening for you and keeps you away, you may be jeopardizing the health of your teeth. At Cascade Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, sedation dentistry is a big deal and something we are very good at.

With sedation you have choices – IV, oral or nitrous oxide. An IV sedation has several advantages. It is a very precise method that ensures you get just the right amount. It also has a reversal agent, so we can stop it anytime and bring you out of its effects quickly.

Oral sedation is taken in the form of a pill and involves no needles, however it is harder to regulate the level of sedation and usually takes longer for the effects to wear off. Many times a combination of both IV and oral sedation are utilized.

Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas and is a safe quick acting gas you inhale. It has no odor, color or side effects, and can give you a longer and deeper relaxing experience with less anxiety.
