Do you ever feel anxious or nervous about visiting the dentist? Have you had negative experiences at the dentist in the past? If so, sedation dentistry is perfect for you. We offer three options for sedation dentistry in Stillwater, Minnesota to ensure that your dental experience at Stillwater Family Dental is enjoyable and pleasant. We offer nitrous oxide, conscious sedation, and IV sedation.
- IV sedation is provided at our office by a nurse anesthetist so you are asleep during the entire procedure. Our team will monitor you throughout the treatment for your safety. IV sedation is good for patients who want to sleep through their appointment.
- Conscious sedation involves taking a pill before your appointment to help you feel relaxed during your treatment. We will carefully monitor you during the procedure to ensure that you are comfortable and safe. With conscious sedation, you will remain awake during your treatment, but you may not remember portions of your visit.
- Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a gas that you inhale to feel more calm and relaxed. The effects of nitrous oxide produce a euphoric feeling or even a floating sensation; these effects will wear off within just a few minutes of the completion of the treatment.
Our friendly dentists, Dr. Perpich, Dr. Carlson, and Dr. Berge, are pleased to provide multiple types of sedation dentistry to ensure that your experience at our office is as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
