Sedation Dentistry in St. Louis

Complete Dental Care without the Anxiety

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry in St. LouisMillions of people in the United States suffer from dental anxiety, leading them to put off much-needed dental appointments and routine cleanings—to the detriment of their oral health. Fortunately, there is a solution. Sedation dentistry uses medication to relax patients during their visit to the dentist's office, providing them with relief for their anxiety. At West County Dental, we offer these options for sedation dentistry:

Nitrous Oxide. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide induces a mild sedative effect that allows the patient to relax. It is delivered through a mask, and the amount of sedative you receive is controlled by your dentist. When you receive nitrous oxide, you will be conscious and able to communicate with your dentist throughout your visit.

Oral Conscious Sedation. As with IV sedation, this form of sedation places you in a relaxed state but allows you to remain conscious and able to respond. However, it is administered by taking a pill prior to arriving at your dentist's office. You will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment.

Sedation dentistry is a great solution for anyone who becomes paralyzed with fear at the thought of visiting the dentist. With our St. Louis dentist, virtually all our dental care treatments can be performed under varying degrees of sedation. The end result is that your teeth and gums get the care they need, without all the awful memories!

A safe and effective solution to extreme dental fear and anxiety!

Many people have phobias when it comes to visiting the dentist. These phobias often prevent them from getting the oral care they need. With our sedation dentistry services, you no longer have to have fear or anxiety. You can live peacefully knowing that your oral health is taken care of.

The minimal sedation options available at West County Dental include:

  • Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas): A mild sedative delivered through a nose hood.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation: Increased sedation administered through oral medication rather than needles.

Simply put, there is no reason to let fear or anxiety keep you from the dentist. Call us today at (314) 821-2712 to learn more about our minimal sedation dentistry options in St. Louis.
