Sedation Dentistry in University Park
What’s keeping you from the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve? For many patients, the answer to that question is anxiety. Dental anxiety is a condition that prevents many people from seeking essential care and maintenance. With sedation dentistry, patients who struggle with anxiety get the help they need.
Our dental office offers two kinds of sedation: nitrous oxide and IV sedation. Nitrous oxide is more commonly known as laughing gas, and when combined with a local anesthetic provides most patients with the sense of comfort and relaxation they need to undergo care.
For more anxious patients, we offer IV sedation provided by an anesthesiologist. IV sedation provides patients with a deeper sense of relaxation through safe, anxiolytic medications administered by the anesthesiologist.
Which option is right for you? We would be happy to help you answer that question during a consultation with Dr. Higginbottom, Dr. Derksen, or Dr. Hildebrand.
