Conscious Sedation

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a pill and relax to your “Happy Place”!  Now you can let your anxieties go and have your dental work done in peace and comfort.  We offer oral sedation as taught through Docs Education and also Nitrous Oxide Sedation.

As a member of the D.O.C.S. Oral Sedation program, Dr. Nelson is fully qualified to administer sedation dentistry techniques so you experience the most comfortable and relaxed dental experience possible. This includes using the very latest in oral conscious sedation.

Using oral conscious sedation, you are given a small pill to swallow about 30 minutes or so before your treatment begins. Soon, you find yourself easing into a safe, almost surreal state of calm relaxation. Although you remain conscious and fully aware during all sedation dentistry procedures, you will be so relaxed that you will feel no anxiety during the treatments. In fact, though awake the entire time, you may discover that you don’t even remember some or all the sedation dentistry procedures performed for you—almost as if you fell asleep!

Sedation dentistry can help you to realize results faster.

Another benefit of the sedation dentistry we offer is extended-time office visits. Because you become so relaxed and comfortable, it is often possible for Dr. Nelson to easily perform multiple procedures in the same session. This can reduce the need for numerous follow-up visits, while letting you more quickly realize your dream of a picture-perfect smile!

To learn more about sedation dentistry, oral conscious sedation, and the other sedation techniques we offer—or if you would just like to meet with Dr. Nelson to candidly discuss your fears—a compassionate ear is just a free consultation away.

Dr. Nelson is a standing member of the D.O.C.S. Oral Sedation Program
