Our Marysville, WA dental office provides the following sedation dentistry options:
Oral Conscious Sedation
Pinewood Family Dental offers oral conscious sedation to help our anxious patients stay relaxed throughout their appointment. Oral conscious sedation is taken as a pill shortly before the appointment, producing a mild to moderate sedative effect. This simple form of sedation is designed to relieve feelings of dental anxiety, allowing patients to feel drowsy or fall into a light sleep.
Laughing gas, also known as inhalation sedation, is a form of light sedation that can be offered to patients of any age. Those with mild anxiety in the dental chair can find relief from laughing gas, a colorless, odor-free gas that is administered through a comfortable breathing mask.
This form of sedation is known to be one of the safest and easiest sedation techniques. Our doctors will carefully control the amount of gas administered to ensure optimum comfort and safety.
Intravenous (IV) sedation is also known as sleep dentistry. It is offered to patients who experience extreme dental anxiety, have special healthcare needs, or have scheduled an oral surgery or long treatment.
IV sedation promotes a feeling of relaxation and, in some patients, temporary memory loss. Our doctors will adjust the medication as needed during treatment to ensure optimal safety and comfort.
