Sedation Dentistry

What do you know about sedation dentistry? A lot of dentists claim to offer sedation dentistry when all that is really available is nitrous oxide or a separate trip to a surgical facility. At Dream Dentist, we offer a full menu of sedation dentistry and dental care services that meet the needs of every single patient.

Choose from:

  • IV Sedation
  • Oral Sedation
  • Nitrous Oxide Sedation (Laughing Gas)

IV and Oral Sedation for Relaxing Dental Care

Not just any dentist can offer sedation dentistry in their office. Dr. Sarah Thompson has extensive training and licensing which allow her to offer both IV sedation and oral sedation to patients in O'Fallon, St. Louis and the surrounding areas at Dream Dentistry.

IV sedation is the safest level of deep sedation available in a dental facility. Using intravenous medication, patients quickly and easily fall asleep just a few moments after the medication is administered. The medicine is continued until the procedure is over and then turned off so the patient gradually regains consciousness. However, you will still continue to feel groggy for a few hours, so it’s important to have someone drive you home.

Oral sedation uses prescription strength sedatives to help patients feel mild to moderately sedated. Most people feel like they are taking a light nap and dreaming through their appointment. The sedative effect lasts for a few hours, allowing us to complete all of your dental care before wearing off.
