Belpre Dental Studio Sedation Options – Not One Size Fits All
Each patient is unique, which is why we are trained to provide a variety of sedation options to meet your individual needs. Sedatives are given to patients in a variety of ways, including by mouth, under the tongue, inhaled through the nose, or administered intravenously (through the veins).
Whatever dental treatment you need or the number of years you’ve avoided the dentist, Belpre Dental Studio offers a safe and effective path to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Choose from 3 Levels of Sedation
Option 1. Complimentary Nitrous Oxide Sedation – Safe for Children and Adults
Every year at Belpre Dental Studio hundreds of patients enjoy the benefits of nitrous oxide sedation. Commonly known as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is considered very safe with few if any side effects, no known allergic response, and no lingering effects so you may continue on your day as normal after your appointment.
In our office, we offer this service free of charge for anything from dental cleanings to dental implants. Read more about our option for this free conscious sedation here.
Option 2. Oral Sedation
Our patients and doctors love the benefits of oral sedation. As an oral sedation patient, you are totally relaxed, yet still responsive during the appointment so you can answer questions and communicate with our team. You will simply take a prescribed medication (in the form of a pill) prior to the start of your appointment.
Many patients love the “amnesia effect” – time goes by quickly and you don’t remember the sights and sounds of your visit to the dentist the way you do when you are not sedated. While you rest through your appointment, we take very good care of you! You are never left alone and all of your needs are met.
Our dentists use well established and proven oral sedation techniques tailored to meet your needs. Our goal is to make you totally comfortable, keep you safe, and give you the best dental visit you’ve ever had.
Option 3. Intravenous Sedation (IV)
Intravenous or IV Sedation provides the deepest level of relaxation. It is often the best choice for people with intense anxiety, phobia, or fear of the dentist. IV sedation allows you to “sleep” in total comfort through your dental procedure. Dr. Huffman and his team keep you comfortable during treatment and when you awake you get to enjoy your new smile and dental health with little to no recollection of the sights, sounds, and smells of treatment.
You deserve a safe and wonderful dental experience.
At Belpre Dental Studio, we give you that. No matter your situation, we are 100% Judgement-free! You will never be judged or made to feel embarrassed.
