Feeling uneasy about dental procedures is normal for many patients. At Ideal Smiles, we understand that dental fear can have a major impact on the health of your teeth. Our team of advanced specialists offer a variety of dental sedation therapies to help ease your dental phobia and deliver your ideal smile. Our gentle procedures and caring staff will make you look and feel great while you are completely relaxed. Even the most fearful patients have pleasant and comfortable dental treatments with little or no memory of the dental procedure afterwards. There is no need to put off important dental procedures or to feel embarrassed about dental phobia when you can have dental sedation therapy.


Are you a candidate for dental sedation therapy?

Sedation Therapy may be right for you if you have any of the following:


  • Dental Anxiety
  • Dental Phobias, fear of needles, shots, or drill sounds
  • Traumatic dental experiences in the past
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • Complex dental issues
  • Difficulty controlling movement


Sedation Dentistry Options
We offer a range of sedation dentistry options to make any dental treatment painless and anxiety-free. We can guide you to a sedation therapy that will provide you with relaxation during the dental procedure.


Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas can be adjusted to fit your needs. You remain conscious, you will be able to interact with your dentist throughout your dental treatment. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly, so most patients are able to drive themselves after the dental treatment.


  • Remain conscious during dental procedure
  • Interact with dentist throughout the dental procedure
  • Effects wear off quickly and most patients can drive afterwards


Oral Sedation Therapy
Oral sedatives are taken in either pill or liquid form about an hour before your appointment. You will be completely relaxed and monitored by our trained staff at all times for your safety. Though you will be in a very deep state of relaxation, you will be able to respond to questions during the dental treatment. Afterwards, most patients recall little or nothing about their treatment. A friend of family member will be required to drive you home. When the sedation wears off, you will be rejuvenated and have only pleasant memories (if any) of your dental visit.


  • Heavily sedated
  • Monitored by highly trained staff for your safety
  • You will be conscious enough to answer questions but will remember little if anything about the dental visit when the sedation wears off
  • Requires a friend or family member drive you home


IV Sedation Therapy
IV Sedation Therapy is designed to enable you to undergo your dental procedures while you are extremely relaxed, drifting in and out of sleep. It will enable you to tolerate as well as not remember those procedures that may be very uncomfortable for you and alleviate the anxiety you may have for dental procedures. The goal of IV Sedation is to use as little medication as possible to get the treatment completed. It is very safe, continuously controlled by our highly trained staff and can be administered to reverse the effects of the medication if necessary.


  • Immediate results
  • Expert treatment by a certified IV dentist
  • Complete relaxation and comfort during dental procedure
  • Quick recovery
