Sedation Dentistry

Do you have a fear of visiting the dentist?
Have you neglected your dental healthcare because you have anxiety about receiving treatment? 


At Koplon Implant & Family Dentistry, we have a solution for your anxiety: sedation dentistry. In our office, we offer sedation dentistry options for patients who experience true anxiety surrounding their dental care. During sedation dentistry, the patient is still conscious throughout the dental procedure. They are in a safe and relaxed state where often times, they don’t remember the procedure at all. Our practice is certified in oral conscious sedation techniques and can care for you and your specific anxiety needs.

About Sedation Dentistry

How can I relieve my anxiety at the dentist?

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral Conscious Sedation is a safe technique that we offer in our office. It does not involve needles or IVs. Under our supervision, the patient orally takes a pill that helps put them in a deeply relaxed state. While the patient can respond to verbal cues and is conscious, they likely will remember little – if any – of their procedure. The patient must have a friend or family member drive them home after the visit, as the medication may take several hours to wear off.

Inhalation Sedation

Inhalation Sedation is the usage of nitrous oxide, which most people know as “laughing gas.” Laughing gas is inhaled by placing a comfortable rubber nose on the patient. They can inhale the gas to achieve a relaxed and conscious state. While laughing gas helps make you feel at ease, it does not cloud your memory of the procedure and you can safely drive home after your visit.

How does the Sedation Dentistry work?

First, you meet with our practice to learn about your dental anxiety, health history and determine if oral conscious sedation is a fit for you.
With sedation dentistry, the patient orally takes a pill that induces a highly relaxed state.
The patient is awake and aware of their surroundings and can follow instructions from the dentist.
Because the pill is taken before the appointment and takes a little while to wear off, the patient will need someone to drive them to the dentist’s office and back again after the appointment.
No IVs are necessary for oral conscious sedation, which helps relieve extra fears that patients may have.

Am I a candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

There are many types of patients who are a fit for oral conscious sedation. You may have anxiety surrounding the procedure or may need sedation because of a more intense and/or long service. Regardless of your specific need, sedation dentistry helps ease your appointment and make you more comfortable.

If you qualify as a patient who experiences anxiety, our team can help you determine an appropriate course of sedation dentistry that meets your needs.
