At Love Dentistry, we understand that many people come to us because they’ve had a bad dental experience in the past. We’re able to provide a unique environment that alleviates anxiety about dental care, and increase your comfort during treatment. We would want the same for ourselves! Our sedation choices allow patients to ease right into their treatment, and maintain optimum comfort throughout every visit.
Sedation dentistry allows patients to relax through their entire visit. In most cases, a majority of the necessary dental work can be completed in the very same visit! Our sedation patients enjoy:
We offer 3 different types of sedation for you to choose from:
Dr. Sheri Boynton-Love is a certified oral sedation dentist. Our patients can opt to take a prescription sedative about one hour before their appointment, and feel like they’re daydreaming for the next few hours. Even though you’ll be able to respond to simple questions, you most likely won’t remember a single thing!
Nitrous oxide sedation is an inhaled sedative that creates a relaxed sensation from head to toe. If you choose nitrous oxide, you’ll still be fully conscious, but won’t care as much about what’s going on. You’ll also have a decreased pain response!
Intravenous sedation is hospital-grade sedation that is administered by our partnering nurse anesthetist. The effects of IV sedation allow the medication to take effect very quickly, while maintaining the safest level of deep sedation. Once Dr. Sheri has completed your treatment, the medication is turned off. Within a few minutes, full consciousness is regained.
