Sedation Dentistry Is Available To Suit Every Need

Sedation dentistry can be categorized by different levels, all of which offer unique advantages, depending upon whether your anxiety is mild to severe. Even for patients who choose sedation, Dr. Schmidt continues to practice the philosophy of conservative dentistry and provides minimally invasive techniques with a gentle touch. Your visits can be anxiety- and pain-free.

  • Nitrous oxide gives you a temporary feeling of euphoria that lasts only while the treatment is performed so that you can drive yourself to and from your appointment.
  • Oral sedation allows you to feel groggy and relaxed throughout your procedure with the assistance of a prescription pill, although the effects may last for several hours.
  • IV sedation affords you the option to sleep through your entire visit, with no memory of the procedure. Dr. Schmidt works with an anesthesiologist to provide this sedation method.
