With Three Choices, Find the Right Level of Sedation

Our dentists have the training and experience to safely administer three different forms of dental sedation to suit your needs:

  • Inhaled Sedation – By breathing in a mixture of oxygen and medication, you can quickly ease back in our heated massage chair and let the sedative take the edge off. It’s safe for all ages, takes effect and wears off quickly, and allows mildly fearful patients to get the treatment they need more easily.
  • Oral Sedation – You might have a longer treatment lined up and would like a stronger sedative to calm your nerves. Oral sedation is a great choice! You’ll receive a prescription to take before your appointment, so your body will be deeply relaxed and your mind at ease. For safety purposes, you’ll need to have someone drive you to and from your appointment.
  • IV Sedation – This is the strongest form of sedation. It allows patients with dental phobia, a sensitive gag reflex, low pain tolerance, or multiple treatments planned during a single appointment to be in a deep state of relaxation. We’re trained to monitor the sedative level throughout your procedure and can adjust it as needed. As with oral sedation, you will need to arrange transportation.

We’re committed to making Edgewood Dental Care a warm, judgment-free zone where you always feel safe, heard, and supported. In addition to sedation, that means:

  • Personalizing your care with private rooms and longer appointments by request
  • Offering comfort items such as refreshments, blankets, pillows, massage chairs, and more
  • Investing in the latest technology for faster, more comfortable treatments
  • Providing multiple convenient payment options

It’s easy to see the possibilities for your smile with our comfort and sedation options in Edgewood, KY! To schedule your appointment, call 859-474-7830 today. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Sedation Options

What sedation options are available to me?

At Edgewood Dental Care, you’ll have a choice of three sedation options. We offer inhaled sedation using laughing gas, oral conscious sedation in pill form, and IV sedation that will put you in a dreamlike state. Their sedative effects range from mild to deep and will fit the needs of any patient who is nervous about receiving dental care.

Are your sedation options safe?

Yes, our sedation dentistry is completely safe because it is expertly administered and monitored by our trained team. Inhaled sedation uses mild laughing gas, which is safe even for children. Oral conscious sedation works using a small, FDA-approved pill, and IV sedation can be adjusted throughout treatment. You can feel confident in our team’s ability to use our dental sedation options for your benefit.
