Our Primary Sedation Services

Our first face-to-face consultation will include a review of our sedation choices and a recommendation of which one, or combination of them, might suit you best based on the extent of your dental anxiety and other factors. Choices include:

IV Sedation
Delivered through an IV, this form of sedation creates a state that’s similar to sleep, however you won't feel anything during your procedure, nor will you remember any aspect of it later. IV sedation in Edgefield, SC is one of the preferred options for patients who have extreme dental anxiety and is frequently used during dental implant placement and various oral surgery procedures.
1
Oral Sedation
With this option you swallow a pill prior to your procedure and then fall into a peaceful sleeplike state. Similar in effect to IV sedation, this is a frequent choice for those with moderate to severe dental anxiety.
2
Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide is commonly known as laughing gas. Taken by inhaling the gas through a mask, this form of sedation may not make you laugh, but it will keep you calm and lucid during your care.
3
Local Anesthesia
We have local anesthesia to numb a very specific treatment area within the mouth. This can be applied in gel form or injected directly into the site.
