    Grand Rapids, MI Sedation Dentistry

    Comfort Dentistry for Anxious Patients

    Sedation Dentistry involves the use of sedatives in order to produce a relaxed state for dental treatment. Dental sedation is an excellent solution for anxious or fearful patients or patients that need to undergo extensive treatments. Experience comfort dentistry with at your Grand Rapids, MI dental office.

    Dr. Lambert has a variety of conscious sedation options available for his patients. Sedation types, depth, and effects fall onto a spectrum.

    - Nitrous Oxide: also known as “Laughing Gas”, is a colorless, sweet smelling gas that is administered through a mask in combination with oxygen. Nitrous oxide produces an analgesic (numbing) effect and can also give a sense of wellbeing. Nitrous is commonly used for anxious patients during mild and limited procedures such as fillings and crowns, but may be used in combination with other forms of sedation.

    - Local Anesthesia: is delivered directly to the area that will be treated. Local anesthesia is used in many dental procedures including fillings, crowns, root canals, and oral surgeries. It produces a profound sensation of numbness in the area it is administered to. Local anesthesia can be used in combination with more potent forms of sedation such as IV or oral sedation.

    The conscious sedation methods your Grand Rapids dentist employs are widely accepted and safe procedures that can greatly benefit anxious and fearful patients. These options enable them to receive the dental treatment that they need in order to maintain optimal oral health. Longer procedures that might usually require multiple appointments can be done in one with the use of conscious sedation.
