Dental Sedation Sets Nervous Patients at Ease

Many of LakeCrest Dental’s longtime patients were once uncomfortable (or even terrified) about sitting in the dentist’s chair. However, skilled use of dental sedation is one of the ways we help set our nervous patients at ease. We offer sedation options depending on your needs and level of anxiety:

  • Inhaled sedation is our mildest form of sedation. Just a few minutes after breathing in laughing gas through a mask, you’ll begin to experience a relaxing calmness and mild euphoria. The effects will diminish quickly after your appointment, however, and you’ll feel like yourself in no time.
  • Oral conscious sedation uses an FDA-approved pill that Dr. Patten will prescribe for you before your appointment. It provides a deeper level of relaxation, and its effects will take several hours to wear off. You’ll need to have someone else drive you home.

Besides sedation, we also offer our patients many amenities to help them relax and feel at home. Feel free to ask for comfortable pillows, warm blankets, lip balm, water, and stress balls.

Call 918-205-4386 today or schedule online. With our help, you can relax with sedation options in Sand Springs at your next appointment.

Common Questions About Sedation Options

What kinds of sedation are used for dentistry?

At LakeCrest Dental, we’re proud to offer you two safe dental sedation options. You can choose between inhaled sedation with laughing gas or oral conscious sedation using a small pill. Either one will work great when it comes to eliminating your dental anxiety. We’ll help you determine which one is right for you.

How long does dental sedation last?

If you choose inhaled sedation with laughing gas, the effects of the sedative will vanish immediately after your exam or procedure. You should have no problem safely driving yourself home. With oral conscious sedation, the pill’s effects will linger for a few hours, so you’ll need a trusted friend or family member to drive you home afterward.

Is dental sedation safe?

Yes, we only use safe, time-tested sedation options at LakeCrest Dental. In fact, laughing gas is so mild and gentle, it is even safe to use for kids. Our oral sedation uses only medications that are approved by the FDA. It is a reliable and predictable way to help nervous patients relax and get beneficial dental care.
