Enteral sedation

This is the most popular sedation, allowing even anxious patients to relax during dental treatment.

  • Prescription sedative and comfort medications are taken orally
  • Reduces the level of anxiety
  • A relaxed person will usually go to sleep
  • An anxious person will usually relax
  • Can be used in conjunction with laughing gas, inducing a relaxed, happy attitude
  • Enteral sedation, inhalation sedation, or a combination can be used for any procedure – even routine dental care, such as teeth cleaning

IV sedation

This is the strongest level of sedation, inducing a semi-conscious, anxiety-free state. Few dental practices meet the strict licensure requirements to administer IV sedation.

  • Also called conscious dental sedation
  • You will likely have absolutely no memory of the dental procedures being done!
  • Sedative is delivered intravenously
  • Induces a deeper level of sedation, but is milder than general anesthesia
  • You are able to breathe and swallow naturally
  • Usually reserved for involved surgeries
  • Highly effective, even for most severe dental fears

I enjoyed the smile center, the staff over there are very nice. I really liked the hygienist Mary, she is so sweet and she made me feel very comfortable. She is very easy to talk to.
