Sedation

Dentistry can be a relaxing day at the beach. Wait, what? Yes, it can be. We can utilize nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation combined with your favorite show or Island tunes. You'll never know that you're in the dental chair.

 

Dr. Smitherman and her team will make sure that you are comfortable every step of the way. 

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly known as "laughing gas"

 

Gives tingly sensation in extremities and feeling of floating

No need for an escort or ride

Oral Conscious Sedation

Medication (Triazolam) given in office 1 hour before dental appointment

 

Combined with nitrous to provide "twilight sleep" type sedation

What You Need to Know about Sedation

Nitrous oxide is safe for all patients except those that are pregnant or have COPD. 

Oral Conscious sedation can be used in the majority of patients. Dr. Smitherman will review your medical history and determine the best type of sedation for your specific needs. 

Our goal is for our patients to feel comfortable and taken care of. We will go above and beyond for you to have a relaxing dental visit, from the chapstick on your lips to a soft blanket to warm up with.
