Sedation

Your Healthy, Beautiful Smile is Our Priority

Feel relaxed during your next dental treatment with the help of sedation dentistry.

Neglecting your dental care can lead to serious problems with your oral health. If anxiety has caused you to forgo a trip to the dentist, we invite you to contact us and discuss the many options available to help you feel more comfortable. We will happily customize a relaxation procedure for you so you can maintain your oral health without anxiety.

Types of Sedation:

We understand that each person has unique needs.  Whether you had a negative past experience or a fear of needles, at Pathways Dental Care we are pleased to offer several types of sedation.

Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) Reduces anxiety and allows you to relax in order to help you complete your treatment.  This is the only type of sedation that has no after effects so you can enjoy the rest of your day immediately afterwards.

IV sedation/ Oral Sedation Often used for moderate to severe anxieties or more demanding procedures like wisdom teeth removal.  You will need someone to take you home after your treatment is completed.

General anesthesia We use this type of sedation for people with severe anxiety and children you require extensive dental treatment.  This type of sedation also requires someone to take you home after your treatment is completed.
