Sedation: Does The Whole Family Qualify?

Of course, when you consider the idea of dental sedation and all of the serene dental care that comes with it, it sounds like a massive sigh of relief. However, if you are the type to begin asking “what if” type questions, you may quickly worry about one particular detail: Whether it’s something you can access (and something your loved ones will have access to). The short version of the answer to your question is: Most of the time, sedation is a possibility! As for some specifics, let’s get down to a slightly more focused explanation on candidacy.

You And Other Adults

We offer a full range of dental sedation choices for adults! Depending on your level of dental anxiety, your need for sedation, your health history, and other details, you may better qualify for particular selections. We will talk about what’s best for you when we see you. Remember that our sedation includes nitrous oxide, nitrous oxide plus oral sedation, oral sedation, or IV sedation.


Children are most certainly candidates for receiving dental sedation. We know that the dental practice, the equipment, and the procedures can sometimes feel a little overwhelming to kids (because they can feel overwhelming to adults, too!). Generally speaking, children who need sedation will do quite well with nitrous oxide.
