Sedation Dentistry
Portland, OR

Patient with gas mask on. Arbor View Dental Center - Portland Oregon
If you are like many people, the very thought of dental work can make you cringe. We know that many patients are uncomfortable undergoing dental work, so we offer sedation dentistry for virtually all dental care.

Types of Sedation

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly known as laughing gas provides a lighter sedation for mild to moderate anxious patients. It is effective with in five minutes after breathing the gas. It induces a relaxing, euphoric feeling and distresses those anxious concerns.

Oral Sedation

This uses pills taken orally an hour prior to dental treatment. Oral sedation is useful for a moderate to severely anxious patient. You are awake but quite relaxed and doze off and on during the treatment. It has good amnesic effects leading to no to very few memories of dental procedures.

IV Sedation

Appropriate for those patients who have been severely traumatized in the past. This IV sedation is very effective for those people difficult to numb or stay numb.

Why sedation?

Here are further reasons to us IV sedation dentistry:

•  Bad gag reflex.
•  Aversions to dental sounds and smells.
•  Fear of needles and drills.
•  Resistance to anesthetics,
•  Difficult time sitting for long periods of time.
•  Minimizing dental appointments with longer appointments.
