Sedation Dentistry in North Palm Beach
Orange Dental Partners

We know that dental work can be daunting.

At Orange Dental Partners, your comfort is our top priority. Our goal is not only to provide you with exceptional, long-lasting results but to provide you with the best overall experience throughout every step of your treatment. To facilitate this, we offer our patients in North Palm Beach sedation dentistry in the form of nitrous oxide and oral sedation so that you can relax during your procedure.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry offers the added comfort of sedation to local numbing for a more tranquil treatment experience. Sedation dentistry involves the use of a variety of medications to reduce stress and anxiety related to dental procedures. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation. Depending on the type of sedation used for your procedure, you may stay completely awake or relax enough to fall asleep gently during your treatment.

What are the benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry allows patients to take a customized approach to ensure a high level of comfort during their procedures.

While those with mild anxiety about their treatments may choose a lighter sedation, those who are more nervous about their treatments can receive a slightly stronger option. Both nitrous oxide and oral sedation are fast-acting, and their effects subside quickly, so your sedation will not significantly impact your recovery.

Is Sedation Dentistry right for me?

Sedation dentistry is an excellent approach to treatment for patients who have general dental anxiety, are nervous about their treatment, need extensive dental work, have an overactive gag reflex, or have trouble sitting still during treatment. So, whether you have a dental emergency or need a root canal, we can help take the pain and anxiety out of the equation.

How long does sedation last?

The type of sedation used will impact how long the effects last. While nitrous oxide allows for faster recovery, oral sedation can take anywhere from two to eight hours to wear off. If you undergo your procedure with oral sedation, you will need to rest for several hours after your appointment. We also suggest having a close friend or family member drive you home and stay with you during this time.

Sedation Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions

Will I fall asleep during my procedure?

Nitrous oxide will help you to relax during your procedure but is not likely to put you to sleep. While oral sedation offers stronger effects, most patients remain awake during their procedure. It is possible that you could relax enough to fall asleep during your treatment, but you will be easily woken up as soon as your procedure is finished.

Can I drive after my sedation dentistry procedure?

Nitrous oxide does not impair motor function and will not affect your ability to drive after your appointment. However, oral sedation is stronger and can influence your ability to drive for up to 24 hours. Therefore, if you have oral sedation, you will need to arrange for someone close to you to drive you home after your procedure.

What's the difference between laughing gas & oral sedation?

Laughing gas is a mild form of sedation and wears off faster than oral sedation. Selecting which option is the best fit for you will depend on your purpose for considering sedation, the extent of your procedure, and other personal factors.
