Sedation Dentistry
  • Are you anxious about going to the dentist?
  • Did you ever have a traumatic dental experience?
  • Are you in need of extensive dental work, requiring one or several long procedures?
  • Do you have a hyper-sensitive gag reflex?
  • Do you have limited time for extensive dental work?
  • Do you have sensitive teeth?

At Cecchini Advanced Center for Dentistry, we offer sedation dentistry techniques to enable patients - who may otherwise avoid the dentist - to receive the dental treatment necessary for a bright and healthy smile. 

Sedation dentistry options include:

Nitrous Oxide

In one form of conscious inhalation sedation, nitrous oxide gas (also known as laughing gas) is used to induce a state of relaxation.  A local anesthetic will be administered in combination with nitrous oxide sedation to eliminate pain.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedative medications can be given to a patient the night before a dental procedure or 30 minutes to an hour before a dental appointment, depending on the severity of the anxiety.  A local anesthetic will also be administered prior to the dental procedure.

IV Sedation

Like oral sedatives, intravenous (IV) sedation does not provide pain relief, so a local anesthetic will also be administered in conjunction with this method of dental sedation.

After a careful assessment of your needs or the needs of your family member, we will recommend the right sedation technique for you.
