Sedation Dentistry in Tucson
Our primary goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, and pain free experience during your entire visit. We understand that for many people, going to the dentist can be a traumatic experience, so we have taken important steps to assure that every dental patient is treated with the ultimate care.
We have several sedation options available based on the patient’s level of comfort.
Mild Sedation – Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
For the dental patient that may be anxious about the dental visit and needs just a mild form of relaxation. The patient is conscious and able to respond throughout the procedure. An example of mild sedation is the use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
Moderate Sedation – Oral Sedation
This process takes the patient into a much more relaxed state. The patient is conscious and able to respond, but may not remember much of the actual dental procedure. An example of moderate sedation is oral sedation. Oral sedation is accomplished by taking a pill that has been prescribed for you prior to your appointment. Moderate sedation requires you to have a family member or friend accompany you to your dental appointment.
Deep Sedation – IV Sedation
During this process the patient is in a pleasant and unconscious state and will be asleep for the entire procedure. The patient wakes up peacefully and calmly. An example of deep sedation is IV sedation. Deep sedation requires you to have a family member or friend accompany you to your dental appointment.
