Sedation Dentistry

Have you been putting off dental visits for months, or even years? At Wake Forest Family Dentistry, we can eliminate your fears and make dental visits easier and more accessible.

With sedation dentistry, you can receive the treatments you need without any stress or pain. We provide nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. Our caring dentist will help you select the sedation method that’s right for you.

Sedation dentistry can help patients who suffer from anxiety or who need complicated or lengthy treatments. Dental anxiety may be caused from prior negative dental experiences in the dental chair, or a difficulty feeling comfortable during appointments. It’s our priority to give you a painless and relaxing experience next time you walk through our doors.

Types of Sedation at Wake Forest Family Dentistry

Oral sedation requires a medication prescribed by your dentist. Dr. Wagoner will discuss your needs with you and prescribe a fitting anxiety medication. Depending on your dosage, you may experience light or moderate sedation.

Nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas, will induce deep relaxation. Some patients even feel mildly euphoric. This is an odorless gas that is administered through a breathing mask placed over the nose during your treatment.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Not only will sedation dentistry reduce your dental fears, but it can also protect your health. Neglected dental health problems can lead to tooth pain, tooth loss, and jawbone deterioration. Even worse, poor dental health is linked to systemic complications like heart disease and diabetes.

Whatever your oral health needs may be, we can address them comfortably at Wake Forest Family Dentistry. It’s best to prevent discomfort and restore your smile before more obstacles arise.
