Sedation Dentistry in Camas, WA
Do You Fear Going To The Dentist?
Pain Free Sedation Dentistry
Many people avoid the dentist for regular dental checkups because they are too afraid or suffer from dental anxiety. Dr. Bharathi and our staff at Radiance Dental are trained in sedation dentistry. We provide a safe, anxiety-free dental visit to anyone who may be fearful or nervous about visiting the dentist.
Often mistaken for putting you to sleep, our sedation dentistry procedure allows you to stay awake for the procedure. It will help calm your anxiety and a pain-free dentistry experience.
Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation dentistry are favorable because most sedatives can be taken orally without shots, pain, discomfort, or anxiety.
Safety is essential for our patients, so whether an oral sedative or nitrous oxide is used, we require patients to be accompanied by a spouse, parent, friend, or caregiver.
Advantages of sedation dentistry:
- No anxiety
- No needles or injections
- No pain
- Safe and convenient
- Very few side effects
- We can get more done during each visit
What kinds of sedatives do we use?
At Radiance Dental, we use nitrous oxide or oral sedation depending on the procedure, and the patients need from mild to a deeper level of sedation. Dr. Bharathi and Dr. Bassili will take a comprehensive look at the patient’s medical history and current medications when evaluating if sedation dentistry is the best choice for you.
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” is used as a mild sedative. It is administered through a nose hood during the entire procedure. Nitrous oxide relieves anxiety and diminishes pain throughout the procedure while elevating your mood, which is where the term “laughing gas.” originated. Outside of some minor numbness or tingling, there are very few side effects from nitrous oxide. It is very safe and has been used by dentists daily for decades. In addition, you or your child are completely awake and can reply to instructions or questions during the procedure.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a method that involves giving you a specific type of sedative to reduce anxiety and fear when performing dental treatment. Oral medication is given before the procedure to induce a moderate state of sedation, which makes you relaxed and tired, but not meant to make you wholly unconscious or unresponsive like general anesthesia.
