Sedation Dentistry

Relax Throughout Your Dental Treatment

If you are someone who feels nervous at the thought of a dental exam, preventive cleaning, or necessary dental treatment, we have options to help put you at ease. Our sedation dentists in Fort Wayne, IN, and the Roanoke and Huntington, IN, areas want you to be 100% comfortable – you can even sleep during your exam, cleaning, or other procedure.

Sedation dentistry will truly make your visit completely stress-free! Your relaxed state will keep your mind off of your appointment, or even let you enter a state of dreaming while our dentist works on your mouth.

Who Can Benefit From Sedation Dentistry?

Many patients just like you come to Legacy Dental because our sedation options help you with challenges including:

  • A bad gag reflex
  • Difficulty getting numb with local anesthetic such as Novocaine
  • Limited amount of time to complete your dental care
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Dislike of noises, smells, and tastes associated with dental care
  • Discomfort with needles and shots
  • Fear or embarrassment about your teeth

Enjoy Calm & Relaxation With Oral Conscious Sedation

We want your visit to Legacy Dental to be stress-free, so you can receive the oral health care you need. Rest assured, we do not use needles in our process. Instead, you simply take a prescribed dose of medication about an hour before your appointment. A number of oral agents developed especially for these purposes are safe and have been used for dental procedures for decades.

Once you begin your procedure, our experienced clinical team will monitor your vital signs and make sure you are comfortable and safe throughout the entire procedure. Oral conscious sedation allows you to fully relax for the duration of your appointment. In fact, many patients are so relaxed that they remember little to nothing about their time spent at our office. Since the sedative effect typically lasts for several hours after administration, you will need to arrange to have someone drive you home from our office after your dental procedure is over.

We Also Offer Inhaled Minimal Sedation

This option for sedation dentistry has been used for over a century. With a mask placed over your nose, you breathe colorless, odorless nitrous oxide – also referred to as “laughing gas.” This classic type of sedation is effective because it relaxes patients quickly, but also wears off rapidly once the mask is removed. Nitrous oxide is considered completely safe, even for use in children.
