Dental anxiety is very common and prevents many patients from getting the treatment they need. At Lake Oswego Dental, we are proud to offer sedation dentistry options to make your treatment as painless and stress-free as possible.
Whether you suffer from dental anxiety or you simply desire a more relaxing experience at the dentist, we can help. The team here at Lake Oswego Dental can provide sedation dentistry to help our patients stay as comfortable as possible. Depending on your needs, we may recommend laughing gas or oral sedation.
The goal of sedation is to help patients relax during treatment. Sedation can be used with a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and help the patient relax. This can make procedures comfortable and easy for patients who experience anxiety or other issues.
Laughing gas is a mild type of sedation. This sweet-smelling gas is combined with oxygen and delivered through a small mask over the nose during treatment. Laughing gas can be used for patients of all ages and has no after-effects.
This type of sedation is taken orally before treatment. While under oral sedation, patients become relaxed and drowsy but will remain awake. Oral sedation can be combined with local anesthesia to put patients at ease.
Yes, sedation dentistry is very safe. Our team is highly trained and have the knowledge and skill to administer sedation to you or your children. To determine if sedation is right for you, we will take a thorough medical history and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
