Sedation Dentistry in Waukee, IA

Sedation is the medicine administered to a patient in order to reduce any pain or discomfort that may be experienced during a dental procedure. Sedation may not be necessary for every dental procedure, although it is quite effective when used.

When providing sedation, we ensure the utmost care. We have professionals who ensure the only the proper dose of sedatives is administered, to avoid any unwanted side effects, while keeping the patient calm and comfortable. Procedures that may require sedation include root canal treatment, periodontal services, oral surgery and teeth extractions. We offer oral sedation and laughing gas.

What Is Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation involves taking a pill shortly before a dental procedure. The medication helps the patient to be calm, relaxed, and at the same time largely unaware of their surroundings. It takes a few hours for the medication to wear off, so be sure to have someone to drive you home.

What is Laughing Gas?

This is a gas that is administered to patients before and during treatment. It is administered using a mask that is worn over the patient’s nose. The effect of laughing gas is quickly noticeable. A feeling of calmness will replace the patient’s anxiety or nervousness. The effects of the gas will start to wear off a few minutes after the mask is taken off.

How Safe is Sedation?

Sedation is safe when used properly. What is important is to provide an optimal level of sedation to enable the patient to stay comfortable and not experience any undesirable side effects. Our teams at Lush Family Dental in Waukee take great pride in delivering safe dental care to our patients.
