Sedation Dentistry Options

Do you know your Sedation Dentistry Options?

At Desert Ridge Dental, we give you three sedation dentistry options, so you can have the best dental experience possible.
Our sedation dentistry options help make your dentist visit a breeze. With sedation dentistry, there’s no need for fear of being in pain. Sedation dentistry helps calm your nerves and perhaps even help you forget your dentist visit.

There are several types of sedation dentistry you can choose from and here at Desert Ridge Dental, we provide you with three different options of your choosing so you can have the greatest dentist visit yet.

The Sedation Dentistry Options are:

IV Sedation

IV sedation is administered through a direct injection into the bloodstream, which has immediate effects. When choosing this sedation type, you go into a sleep-like trance and will wake up feeling groggy and/or sleepy, but you will have no recollection of the procedure.

Oral Sedatives

Oral sedatives are best for those who fear needles. The medication will be provided to you prior to your appointment. You will need to take them hours before your appointment in order to relieve anxiety and so you won’t feel any pain during the treatment.

Nitrous Oxide (N2O)

Nitrous Oxide is a gas that you breathe in. There is no color, smell, and no irritation whatsoever. The gas calms the nerves and manages the pain so you don’t feel a thing. It is safe and highly effective.


If you have a fear of going to the dentist or would rather not feel pain at all during your regular dentist visits, make sure to give Desert Ridge Dental a call so you can let them know which sedation dentistry fits your needs best.
