A Quick, Easy Visit with Sedation
Our team understands that many patients may have dental anxiety or phobia when visiting the dentist. At our Webster and Dickinson dental offices, we want you to know we offer sedation dentistry to help you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout your visit.
With sedation dentistry, you’ll be able to receive the dental care you need without worry. Dr. Stroumpus can discuss our sedation options with you during your initial consultation and help determine which method is best for you.
Reasons for Sedation Dentistry
- Past traumatic dental experiences
- Difficulty getting numb
- Fear of dental tools, sounds, or smells
- Undergoing more than one procedure
- Have a bad gag reflex
- Phobia of needles and shots
Types of Sedation We Offer
- Nitrous Oxide: Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is combined with oxygen in which you simply inhale it through a mask. Soon after, you’ll begin to feel much more relaxed in the dental chair. Dr. Stroumpos or one of our team members will be able to control the amount you breathe in throughout your entire procedure. This is the only form of sedation where you can drive yourself home after.
- Oral Sedation: This form of sedative is taken as a pill and is given to you prior to your dental appointment. You’ll need to take the oral medication about an hour before so it has time to settle in by the time you arrive. You will start to feel drowsy, although you’ll still remain awake. In some cases, patients may lightly fall asleep depending on their dosage. We may suggest having a driver after your treatment if you’re still feeling tired.
- IV Sedation: Intravenous (IV) sedation is given by Dr. Stroumpus through your vein, which means you’ll begin to feel its effects quickly. During your procedure, an anesthesiologist will be carefully monitoring and adjusting the level of sedation you receive. With IV sedation, you won’t be asleep, but instead in a safer and more comfortable semi-conscious state.
