Sedation Dentistry at Auburn Dental Center

Ensuring your dental experience is relaxed and stress-free.

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It's sometimes referred to as "sleep dentistry," although that's not entirely accurate as most patients are awake, except for those under general anesthesia. Explore more about our approach to general dentistry.

Benefits of sedation dentistry

Opting for sedation during dental procedures can:

  • Alleviate anxiety and fear
  • Reduce the sensation of pain
  • Allow for multiple treatments in one visit
  • Improve the overall dental experience Learn more about how we prioritize patient comfort.

Types of sedation options we offer

At Auburn Dental Center, we offer various sedation methods tailored to the patient's needs and the complexity of the procedure:

  • Nitrous Oxide: Often referred to as "laughing gas," it helps patients relax during their procedure.
  • Oral Sedation: Administered as a pill, it's ideal for patients with moderate dental anxiety.
  • IV Sedation: Directly administered into the bloodstream, it's suitable for longer procedures or deeper sedation needs.
