Sedation Dentistry Allentown PA

The Full Range of Sedation Dentistry

While we strive to deliver painless injections, some patients are naturally anxious at even the thought of a needle. If this sounds like you, we have options that may help.

With oral conscious sedation, one hour before your visit you take a pill that we dispense to you. You reach a level of sedation that allows you to answer questions but relax through your visit. This is also a good option for those who are busy and want to get all their treatment done in one visit.

We have one of the few general practices in the country qualified to administer not only oral sedation, but also IV sedation for most procedures, extensive or minor. We want you to feel comfortably relaxed throughout your appointment.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation, also called “laughing gas,” is generally used to make treatment more comfortable when a lighter level of relaxation is desired. This is inhaled through a mask that allows you to breathe in the medication to induce a state of relaxation. Local anesthetic will be administered as necessary in conjunction with nitrous oxide to remove any pain in most cases. When your treatment is complete, you can drive yourself home.
