Experience Dentistry Free From Stress And Anxiety

Anesthetic and sedation options are available to prevent you from feeling pain and discomfort during your dental procedure. There are several methods available and several may be combined to give you complete coverage. The type of sedation or anesthesia used will depend on your personalized treatment plan, your personal needs and the expert opinion of your dentist or specialist.

Types of Sedation

At Orchard Family Dental we offer two forms of pain management. We can temporarily numb the small area receiving the work or you may be sedated so you are still awake but completely relaxed. Here’s some more information about each group:

    Local Freezing

    Everyone is familiar with this reliable standard. We patiently numb the area and then carefully inject a local anesthetic to put a small area of your mouth to sleep. You may feel pressure but will not feel pain.


    Using prescription medication or laughing gas, with light to moderate sedation you will be completely conscious but totally relaxed. This method of sedation is often used along with local freezing.

The Benefits Of Dental Sedation

Freezing and light to moderate sedation are useful options that help us serve patients from all walks of life with many different challenges to overcome. Some of the benefits of sedation dentistry are as follows:

Overcoming Dental Anxiety

At times, anxiety can be more daunting than the actual dental procedure. Don’t let dental fear prevent you from getting the care you need. If you experience mild to severe dental anxiety that’s hindering you from pursuing treatment, let us know. We’re here to help.

Make Time Fly By

For extended treatments that require you to keep your mouth open for a prolonged period, sedation ensures your comfort and relaxation. The procedure will seem to pass much more quickly.

Tailored for Your Personal Needs

If you struggle with a sensitive gag reflex, chronic restlessness, or find that mere local freezing is ineffective, sedation can be a valuable solution. It makes dental treatment accessible and manageable for a wide range of needs.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Rest assured that we talk to each and every one of our patients to understand their medical history to decide if sedation dentistry is the right option for you.

Sedation will make you feel drowsy and relaxed pretty quickly. Some people report feeling a mild tingly sensation. Since we do not offer sleep dentistry, you will be conscious during the procedure, but we’ll ensure that you feel no pain.

When sedation is involved, we always stress the importance of having a friend or family member drive you home and keep you company. It’s important to let the sedation wear off completely and give your body a rest before returning to your regular routine.

If you’ve been sedated for your dental procedure we would advise you to take the day off to recover. A good rule of thumb is to set aside 24-hours before returning to your regular routine. The time it takes for any drowsiness to pass will depend on what kind of sedation you receive, but may be somewhere between 2 to 8 hours.
