Arizona Sedation Dentistry: The ultimate dental experience … without needles!
Oral sedation dentistry uses an oral anti-anxiety or sedative medication to substantially diminish your discomfort, fear, or phobias. Plus, unlike IV sedation dentistry, oral sedation dentistry doesn’t need needles to be administered and is a less expensive option. Benefits of Oral Sedation Dentistry:
It is a safe way to effectively relieve mild to moderate anxiety
You’ll be able to breathe and speak during your dental treatment
It’s a less expensive dental treatment than IV sedation dentistry
Oral Sedation Dentistry Arizona: Get all of your dental work completed in one visit
In many cases, when you choose oral sedation dentistry you can get all of your dental work completed in just one visit. And, unlike IV sedation dentistry which may use general anesthesia to render patients completely unconscious, oral sedation dentistry keeps you conscious so you are still able to speak and breathe on your own.
Twilight Sleep Dentistry / Dream Dentistry
Oral Sedation Dentistry is often referred to as twilight sleep dentistry because while you will not actually be asleep you will be in such a state of relaxation you probably won’t remember much of the dental procedure. For many patients hours seem like minutes and the dental appointment goes by just like a dream.
How Oral Sedation Dentistry AZ Works
First, you need to have a consultation with a Legends Family Dentist to see if oral sedation dentistry is right for you. If it is, then your Legends Family Dentist will walk you through your treatment plan and specifically how oral sedation dentistry can help you. You’ll be given a prescription to take before your next appointment. You will need someone to drive you to and from your next appointment, and possibly to stay with you until the oral sedation medication has completely left your system.
Oral sedation dentistry will help you relax and be anxiety-free during your dentist appointment. Keep in mind, that during your dental appointment, your Legends Family Dentist will also give you a local anesthetic as he usually would if you weren’t in for an oral sedation appointment to ensure that your appointment is truly pain free. But don’t worry; by this time in the appointment, you will be so relaxed, that you may not even notice.

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option we can offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Dr. Ford will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
