Sedation dentistry is a specialized approach that helps patients overcome anxiety and fear associated with dental procedures. It involves the use of medication to create a relaxed, easy, and calm state for patients. Whether it's a simple tooth cleaning or a more complex procedure, sedation dentistry can help make your dental visit a comfortable and stress-free experience. It's an ideal solution for those who have been avoiding the dentist due to fear, have a low pain threshold, or require a large amount of dental work.

Why Should I Get Sedation Dentistry?

If dental anxiety has been keeping you from taking care of your oral health, sedation dentistry could be the solution you've been looking for. It allows you to receive the necessary dental care without fear or discomfort. Sedation can help with a variety of procedures, from invasive treatments to simple teeth cleaning. It's particularly beneficial for those with severe dental anxiety, but it can also help if you have a low pain threshold, can't sit still in the dentist's chair, have very sensitive teeth, have a bad gag reflex, or need a large amount of dental work done.

The Benefits Of Sedation Dentistry

Reduces Dental Anxiety

Sedation dentistry is a game-changer for patients who experience dental anxiety or fear. The sedatives used help to create a relaxed and calm state, making the dental visit a more comfortable experience. It allows patients to overcome their fear and receive the dental care they need, improving their overall oral health.

Minimizes Discomfort

One of the main advantages of sedation dentistry is that it minimizes discomfort during dental procedures. Patients often feel no pain at all while under sedation. This is particularly beneficial for those with low pain thresholds or sensitive teeth. It ensures that patients can undergo necessary dental procedures without the fear of pain.

Saves Time

Sedation dentistry can save time by allowing our Meridian dentist to perform more complex procedures in fewer appointments. Because patients are relaxed and comfortable, dentists can work more efficiently without needing to constantly check on the patient's comfort level. This means less time in the dental chair for patients and quicker completion of dental work.

The Sedation Dentistry Treatment Process


The first step in the sedation dentistry process is a consultation with Dr. Frei. During this appointment, he will review your medical history, discuss your dental anxiety and fears, and explain the sedation options available. This is also the perfect time for you to ask any questions you may have about the process.

Preparing for the Procedure

Once you and Dr. Frei have decided on the best sedation option for you, you'll prepare for the procedure. This may involve nitrous oxide (laughing gas), taking oral sedation in pill form, or receiving intravenous (IV) sedation.

Undergoing the Procedure

On the day of the procedure, you'll be made comfortable in the dental chair and the sedation will be administered. Depending on the type of sedation used, you may be awake but relaxed, or you may sleep through the procedure. Dr. Frei and his team will then carry out the dental work while you are sedated.
