Sedation Dentistry

Stress-Free Dental Care

At Rasmussen Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, we believe all patients should undergo their dental procedures in a comfortable, relaxed and anxiety-free fashion. During all surgical procedures, we use local anesthetic to ensure our patients don't feel the slightest hint of discomfort at any point of their treatment. For nervous patients, sedation dentistry can help relieve any dental-related anxiety.
There are several forms and levels of sedation available at Rasmussen Periodontics and Implant Dentistry. The techniques outlined below will enable our patients to feel completely comfortable while in the chair so they can get what they need without experiencing unnecessary stress.
No matter what sedation option is chosen, the patient will still be numbed for the duration of the procedure. Sedation dentistry allows Dr. Rasmussen to perform any dental procedure while keeping the patients relaxed.

Sedation Options

Nitrous Oxide 
(Laughing Gas)

Gentle, effective and fast, nitrous oxide sedation is perfect for those patients who just need to "take the edge" off of their dental anxiety. The gas is inhaled through a small nasal mask, and within moments, a patient will begin to feel warm, happy and slightly numb. The mask stays on the entire time we're working, and the amount of gas can be adjusted based on the patient's comfort level. Once we're finished and the mask removed, a patient will feel completely normal within minutes and be able to resume their day.

Oral Sedation (Pill)

For many patients, oral sedation is the preferred form of "relaxation". You're simply prescribed a pill to take one hour prior to your appointment, so by the time you reach our dental office, you're already calm and cool. Often times, oral sedation will provide amnesic effects, so that you don't remember the procedure at all. Many patient will, in fact, fall asleep during the procedure. You will need to have a driver to and from your appointment with this sedation option.

Intravenous Sedation (IV Conscious Sedation)

IV moderate conscious sedation is our deepest form of sedation and allows the doctor to titrate the patient to the desired level of sedation in a controlled and safe manner. With this option, you will need a driver to and from your procedure. In addition, you should not eat or drink anything for 8 hours prior to the procedure to ensure safety.
