 Sedation Dentistry at Easton Dental Center

The Experts in Sedation Dentistry in Columbus


We’re Columbus’ dental experts. However, you’re the expert on how you react to dentists and dental equipment. If you want something to make your visit a little more calming, let our staff know and they can help you decide if sedation dentistry is right for you or not.


What is Sedation Dentistry?


Sedation dentistry is the act of sedating a patient for the course of dental work. This can be done through inhalation (sometimes known as “laughing gas”), intravenous (with a needle), or the medication can be taken orally. None of this is to be confused with being put to sleep. That’s called general anesthetic, and is not generally used for dental work. Sedation is much more common in the U.S. and instead lowers awareness.

Putting you in a relaxed, calm state is much more helpful for your dentist compared to general anesthetic. Many patients choose to take medication orally, either in pill or liquid form. Complicated procedures that normally take multiple visits can take much less time when a patient is sedated. Hours of work will only seem like a few minutes as the sedative wears off.

How can sedation dentistry help?

Patients who are anxious or afraid of going to the dentist based on childhood stories, experience with poor doctors, or general fear of dental tools love sedation dentistry. It allows them to have the smile they want and not experience the full force of their anxiety. At the same time, sedation is not right for everyone. Those who dislike not having control, prefer being talked through procedures, dislike drugs or sedation, or are simply afraid to hear what their dentist might say should not be sedated for their dental work. Otherwise, this very simple addition to your dental routine is a great option to help patients who are uncomfortable around dentists.

Getting your dental work while sedated at The Dental Center at Easton is a breeze, whether you want to be sedated or more in control. Call our Columbus Office today to learn more and set up an appointment!
