Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Sedation dentistry at Davis Dental Center is extremely safe, and because we’re the only provider in the area with the credentials necessary to perform conscious sedation dentistry, you know you’re in good hands. We utilize three types of sedation dentistry: laughing gas, IV sedation, and oral sedation. We always carefully evaluate every patient’s medical history beforehand, which is why you can rest assured that sedation dentistry is a safe procedure.

How is Sedation Dentistry Performed?

With our friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere, and ultra-high quality treatment, it’s no wonder so many patients choose the comfy way with Davis Dental Center. Laughing gas acts as an analgesic (painkiller) as well as instills a sense of relaxation and cooperation. It is used in many medicinal procedures on both adults and children.

IV Sedation Dentistry

Do you have any fear or anxiety about going to the dentist? Ideal for those patients who wish to combine a variety of intensive procedures into one visit, IV conscious sedation dentistry using an IV applied by an anesthesiologist is often the best choice in such cases. During these procedures, patients may go back and forth between a conscious and unconscious state, and hours can start to feel like minutes. This method does have some lasting side effects following your procedure and patients will need an escort to return home.

Dental Implants

Among our areas of world-class expertise is our high-level capacity with dental implants, including zygomatic implants, and part of the reason that we are so popular with patients seeking dental implants is because of our tremendous expertise in sedation dentistry and IV sedation dentistry.

Recovery from Sedation Dentistry

After your dental procedure is complete, we will turn off the laughing gas and let you breathe normally. This will flush any remaining gas out of your system, and you will become more alert and normal.

How Much Does Sedation Dentistry Cost?

Dental insurance may cover certain types of sedation dentistry. Check with your provider to see if it is covered by your plan.

Crowns & Bridgework

Dentistry is an art as well as a science; dental crowns offer a perfect example of this. A dental crown or “cap” is a covering that fits over a damaged, decayed, or unattractive tooth. It can even replace a tooth entirely as part of dental bridgework.

Cosmetic Tooth Bonding

We are proud of the ways in which dentistry can restore broken or decayed teeth to full beauty and function. One of the easiest and least expensive ways of doing this is with dental bonding.

Clear Aligners

Straighten your teeth with a clear alternative to metal braces. (For Example: Invisalign®)

Clear aligners are a removable, discreet orthodontic treatment. They consist of a series of trays that you wear for several weeks at a time. As your teeth gently move into position, you start using the next set of trays.

Dental Implants

Implants are made of titanium and have special coatings that encourage the fusing of human bone. The top of each implant has an internal screw channel so that crowns, bridges, and or dentures can be screwed in place.

Dental Sealants

Sealants are a thin, protective coating that bonds to the surface of your teeth. When properly applied, sealants can help prevent cavities.

Dentures

Tooth loss is challenging on many levels. Not only can it affect what you eat and how you chew leading to more serious health concerns, it can also make you feel embarrassed and uncomfortable.

Extractions

While many of us do our best to keep our teeth healthy, sometimes a tooth needs to be taken out to keep you healthy. In these cases, an extraction is necessary.

Fillings

Dental fillings are the most conservative way to restore smaller areas of tooth decay. In a dental expert's hands, these types of restorations can be made to conserve as much of your natural tooth as possible while providing a restoration that is almost indistinguishable from the natural tooth. Both resin and porcelain fillings can be adhesively bonded to your natural tooth to add strength.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves opening the crown of the tooth, exposing the roots and pulp of the tooth. When the pulp and root is exposed the infected areas of the tooth are removed.

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

Teeth Cleaning

At Davis Dental Center, we believe that getting your teeth cleaned every 6 months keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.

Teeth Whitening

Let our team help you determine what whitening process is right for you, based on the current color and condition of your teeth.

Veneers

A wafer-thin glass shell that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to mask their shape, color, or size. The highest quality veneers are made individually by hand and are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. veneers can be used to remarkably transform the smile of patients who have worn, chipped, or discolored teeth. Slightly crooked teeth can be straightened as well. Hand-made porcelain veneers are typically very translucent and when bonded to your teeth they are very lifelike.
