Sedation Dentistry Options

The sedation dentistry options offered by Dr. Miyake are:

  • Oral Sedation – often called “conscious oral sedation,” this option helps patients achieve optimal comfort while remaining alert enough to respond to basic directions. Administered in pill form, oral sedation is safe and effective even for men and women who struggle with severe dental phobia
  • Nitrous Oxide – colloquially known as “laughing gas,” nitrous sedation is a time-tested and long-trusted way of achieving comfort before a dental procedure. Nitrous oxide is not as long-lasting as oral sedation, but offers a wonderful solution for patients who do not have strong aversions to dental care or for those who are not good candidates for oral sedation due to medical concerns

These services allow good sedation dentistry candidates to find comfort and relaxation without the risks that come with deeper sedation options. During your initial consultation Dr. Miyake can discuss these treatments with you to help you decide which will best meet your specific needs.
