Sedation Dentistry

Jensen Family Dental offers Nitrous Oxide, Oral Conscious Sedation, and IV Sedation to make you as comfortable as possible during dental procedures.

We Respect Your Feelings

For some people, sitting in a dental chair brings up all the things they don’t like about dental treatment–injections, discomfort, confined spaces, and unpleasant noises. You may not even be sure why you have these feelings, but if you do, that’s all that matters. If you experience a lot of dental anxiety, sedation dentistry may be for you.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

With sedation dentistry (sometimes known as sleep dentistry), there is no reason to avoid going to the dentist or skipping an appointment because of fear or anxiety. At Jensen Family Dental, we will do everything we can to put you at ease. A complimentary beverage, chair pads, and music are all available to help you relax while you receive the best dental care Jensen Family Dental has to offer.

Sedation Dentistry Options

  • Nitrous Oxide (“laughing gas”) is our first line option that allows you to remain conscious during the procedure with no after-effects or recovery time needed.
  • Oral conscious sedation (also known as oral sedation dentistry) requires you to take a prescribed sedative before you arrive at the office. You will need a designated driver to get you to and from the office.
  • IV sedation works well for patients with high levels of anxiety and can be used for any dental procedure, including procedures like tooth extractions.
