Sedation Dentistry - DERRY, NH

Relaxing Your Way to a Healthier Life

Achieve Optimal Oral Health in Comfort

We partner with a nurse anesthetist to offer a wide range of sedation options that will ease your dental fear. No matter your degree of unease or discomfort, our sedation options will make your dental experience relaxing, comfortable, and pain-free. Whether you’re nervous about your gum disease treatment or dental implant surgery, our team of caring and experienced professionals will work with you to decide what treatment plan and what sedation solution will help you reach your oral and overall health goals.

Avoiding dental care can mean more than yellow teeth. If infection or decay is left untreated, gum disease can ensue. But when it comes to visiting the dentist, your health may not be the first thing on your mind. We understand. We know a dental visit, or any doctor’s visit can be stressful. That’s why we offer a friendly and relaxing atmosphere as soon as you walk in our doors and do whatever we can to make your visit easy. It’s also why we offer customized sedation dentistry in Derry, NH to support you whether you have mild or severe dental anxiety.

Our Select Sedation Options

Oral sedation:
This type of sedation is a pill that is taken before or after arriving at your appointment. Oral sedation provides a calming effect, allowing you to feel relaxed and at ease as you experience your dental treatment. The strength of the medication depends on the specific medication we prescribe. Effects range from feeling less anxious to feeling relaxed enough to fall asleep. Either way, your anxiety, fear, or pain will be minimized. You will often need to arrange a ride home after the treatment.
IV sedation:
While IV sedation will keep you conscious, you’ll be in a sleep-like state. Even though you’re technically still awake, you won’t feel or remember the majority, if not all, of your treatment. IV sedation is administered intravenously. We work closely with a nurse anesthetist who comes in and safely administers this anesthesia, ensuring you feel comfortable and safe throughout your procedure.
General anesthesia:
Since this solution will completely render you unconscious, we usually reserve this type of sedation for complex or lengthy procedures or for those with severe dental anxiety. We will have a trusted and experienced nurse anesthetist come in to administer general anesthesia to you and monitor you while we dedicate our focus to providing effective, efficient, and lasting care.

The Importance of Facing Your Fears

Since we understand that dental treatments can be intimidating, we do what we can to ensure you can combat your dental fear and receive the care you need. Putting off treatment because of dental anxiety will only cause you further issues in the future. If gingivitis or gum disease is left untreated it can lead to bleeding gums, gum recession, and even tooth loss. If missing teeth are not replaced, a domino effect of bone loss and additional tooth loss can begin.

We consider not only your immediate concerns but your overall health when crafting any treatment plan and will customize it to your health needs as well as your emotional and financial needs. If dividing your treatment into multiple visits or combining them into just one visit will help, we’ll be sure to adapt your treatment whenever possible. Sedation dentistry is one resource that makes this possible. Our sedation dentistry allows you to take care of any dental issues and maintain your overall well-being without experiencing pain or anxiety. A healthy mouth is vital for your full-body health.
