Our Sedation Options

During a consultation about your treatment, we’ll discuss our sedation options and determine which is best for you based on your level of dental anxiety and the complexity of your procedure. These include:

IV Sedation
Delivered intravenously, this type of sedation produces a state similar to sleep, but you won’t feel anything during your procedure, nor will you remember any part of it afterward. One of the top options for patients with severe dental anxiety, IV sedation in Florence, SC is often used during dental implant placement and other types of oral surgery.

Oral Sedation
With this option you take a pill before your procedure and then fall into a relaxed, calming state. Like IV sedation, this is a strong option for patients with minimal to severe dental anxiety issues.
2
Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide is informally referred to as laughing gas. Delivered by inhalation through a mask, this form of sedation probably won’t make you laugh, but it will keep you relaxed and alert during your procedure and the effects quickly wear off after the mask is removed.
3
Local Anesthesia
We use local anesthesia to numb a small treatment area. This can be applied as a gel or administered via injection.

Avoid the Dangers of Dental Anxiety

We offer multiple sedation choices not only to help prevent you from becoming uncomfortable during your appointment, but to encourage you to keep your dental health on track by returning regularly for routine care. Doing this as well as practicing good dental hygiene and reporting any unusual symptoms immediately can decrease your likelihood of needing more complex, expensive, and potentially uncomfortable treatments down the road. With our extensive sedation options and expertise, there’s no reason for you to ever be afraid of the dentist again.
