Sedation Dentistry in Johnson City

Dr. Angela Cameron believes that everyone should have a comfortable experience regardless of how they feel when they walk into a dentists’ office in Johnson City.

Using oral sedation, nitrous oxide or IV sedation patients with all levels of dental fear will feel safe becoming a patient of Sophisticated-Smiles.

Why is Sedation Necessary?

People who are extremely anxious benefit from sedation dentistry. It is also used for those who are  extremely anxious when it comes to the dentist’s office. So much so that they will forego much needed checkups until the pain is unbearable.

As you can imagine when it gets to this point more work will need to be done making the entire experience more intense than it needs to be.

With dental sedation a patient will have no pain or memory of the procedure or procedures. This makes dental appointments less anxious in the future.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is given in pill or liquid form about an hour before the treatment. It will make you feel drowsy and possibly put you to sleep. However, your dentist will still be able to communicate with you during your procedure.

Because this type of dental sedation will continue to make you feel sleepy about an hour after your treatment you will need to have someone drive you home after your appointment.

Nitrous Oxide

Also lovingly referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is administered through a mask that is connected to a hose and machine. The machine delivers the gas which is monitored by the Sophisticated-Smiles dental team.

Just like oral sedation you will no pain and little, if any, memory of the dental visit. Unlike oral sedation the gas wears off so quickly, that you are able to take yourself to and from your dentist’s office in Johnson City.

IV Conscious Sedation

Used for patients with extreme dental fear, IV sedation excellen and also used for those who are having multiple procedures at the same time.

Delivered through an IV line, you are not asleep during the treatment. You are in a semi awake more comfortable state. Because you will feel groggy you will need to have someone drive you home.
