Our goal is to take the fear and anxiety out of dentistry while providing you with the highest quality of care in our state-of-the-art facility. We are proud to offer only the most painless techniques with your comfort as our number one concern.
Our office provides several types of sedation for dental treatment.
- Nitrous Oxide: For those with minimal anxiety there is nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Nitrous oxide is a gas which is inhaled through a scented nose piece. It gives a unique feeling of relaxation which helps most patients to become quite comfortable during dental treatment. Nitrous oxide is an inexpensive and safe option for nearly everyone.
- Sleep Dentistry: For patients with more anxiety we offer oral sedation. A process by which oral medication (a small pill) is taken prior to the dental appointment to help the patient relax. These medications can be used in conjunction with nitrous oxide to enable the patient to snooze through the dental appointment. During the treatment, the patient is monitored with the best state-of-the-art equipment to make for a relaxing and, most importantly, safe treatment session. When the treatment is complete the patient is awakened feeling well rested with little to no memory of the treatment. This type of sedation works well for patients with bad gag reflexes, highly fearful or patients needing extensive treatment.
- I.V. Sedation: Finally, for patients in need of wisdom tooth removal or extensive need dentistry we offer I.V. sedation. Meadows Dental Group will provide a nurse anesthetist with over 25 years of experience to sit in the room and administer medication to allow you to sleep throughout your appointment. Once again all of the necessary state-of-the-art monitoring equipment is employed for a safe and enjoyable dental experience.
