Sedation Can Help Protect Your Smile For Life

If dental check-ups make you anxious, you’re not alone – about 36% of U.S. individuals experience dental anxiety. At ASAP Dental Care in Jacksonville, FL, we prioritize your comfort through positive experiences, amenities, minimally invasive tech, and sedation options.

With three types of sedation anesthesia available, we tailor the approach to your anxiety level and procedure needs.

Benefits of dental anesthesia

Our Sedation Dentistry Options

Nitrous oxide

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is one of the most common and safest forms of sedation dentistry. It’s so safe that it’s frequently used for children. Nitrous oxide can suppress the gag reflex and helps local dental anesthesia (numbing injections) work better.

 You’ll stay awake but deeply relaxed throughout your procedure, and the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once your mask is removed. You’ll be able to drive yourself home and go about your normal routine after receiving treatment with nitrous oxide.

IV Sedation

Administered intravenously, this sedation dentistry induces deep, profound relaxation. With amnesic effects, many patients who receive IV sedation may forget parts of their care or the entirety of their treatment.

IV sedation dentistry gives us excellent control over your level of anesthesia, which we can adjust for different phases of your treatment if needed. Like oral sedation, you’ll need a driver to take you home.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation offers a gentle and anxiety-free approach to dental care, ideal for patients seeking a relaxed experience. Administered as a tablet or liquid, this method induces deep relaxation while allowing you to remain conscious and responsive throughout the procedure. Our experienced team carefully tailors the sedation level to your needs, ensuring comfort and safety.

Oral sedation effectively reduces dental anxiety, making it a valuable option for those with dental phobia or complex treatment needs. Whether for routine cleanings or more extensive procedures, oral sedation promotes a stress-free and comfortable dental journey.
