Request Sedation Options at Today Dental
Your oral health is our number one priority at Today Dental. But how do you feel when you think about visiting the dentist? Dental anxiety is a real thing. If the prospect of dentistry makes you anxious or fearful, sedation dentistry can change your relationship with any kind of dental treatment.
Sedation dentistry has revolutionized dental care. If dental procedures have been difficult or impossible for you in the past, our relaxing sedation techniques can change everything. Our compassionate dentists can perform any dental procedures, simple or complex, with sedation dentistry.
Dental sedation will make any procedure much more comfortable and stress-free. For patients who struggle with dental anxiety, difficulty with numbing or local anesthetic, an overactive gag reflex, or other problems that make dentistry tough, ask our dentists about sedation. Dental phobia is more common than you might think. We want you to feel relaxed when you get in the dental chair for your treatment. So if local anesthesia is not enough and you’re looking to be more relaxed, whether that be minimal sedation or moderate sedation, we have solutions that will suit your needs.
Sedation dentistry is very popular nowadays and is used in multiple procedures including everything from pediatric dentistry to cosmetic dentistry and oral surgery. Some people just have a real fear of the dentist and even simple procedures involved in general dentistry can make some folks very anxious. These are good candidates for sedation dentistry as it allows for you to relax during your treatment.

Oral conscious sedation
Our dentists are pleased and qualified to offer you a full range of sedation dentistry options, including oral sedation. Oral conscious sedation involves taking a pill shortly prior to your appointment, as directed by our office. While this is not a deep sedation, oral sedation will make you feel drowsy and much more at ease. While you will remain awake and aware of the procedure, with oral sedation you will feel so relaxed that you will not feel any pain, fear, discomfort or anxiety. This allows you to still listen to verbal commands from the dentist. If you’re looking for sedation dentistry in pill form, oral conscious sedation might be the perfect option for you.
Laughing gas sedation has been used in dentistry for decades. We’ll give you a small mask over your nose to inhale the gas. After a few easy breaths, you will begin to feel calm. This technique will not make you fall asleep but will make you feel content during every moment of your treatment. Most dentists have found the benefits of this type of sedation dentistry is that the patient anxiety floats away while the dentist completes the procedure.
We bring IV sedation (or intravenous sedation) professionals into the Today Dental office for those looking for more of a deep sedation. If you want a moderate sedation that is a little stronger than oral conscious or laughing gas, IV sedation could be right for you.
Intravenous sedation will put you into a deeply relaxed state so that you can rest easy through your visit. You will still be conscious during the procedure, but you can relax without being fully aware of everything that is going on. We have monitoring equipment to check up on your vital signs during your procedure and adjust your IV sedation whenever necessary.
