We understand that some patients may feel nervous about visiting the dentist. If you have had negative experiences in the past or if you have neglected your dental care, we can help. Sedation dentistry is a valuable and effective treatment that can help to calm and relax those who feel intimidated or anxious about their appointment. We offer the following types of sedation dentistry in Dillon, Montana:
- Nitrous Oxide is a safe and mild form of sedation, also known as laughing gas. It is mixed with oxygen and is simply inhaled through the nose before and during treatment to help you relax. It wears off quickly when it is withdrawn.
- Oral Conscious Sedation is available from our dentist through a prescription. It is taken before your visit and as a result, you will feel comfortable and calm before starting your treatment.
- IV Sedation is provided through injection into the bloodstream and is a conscious form of sedation, which means you are awake during your treatment but may feel so relaxed that you fall asleep or do not fully remember your treatment.
