Be sure to ask about our options for sedation dentistry in Lansing, MI when you call our dental office to schedule your next visit.

Why Choose Healthy Smiles Dental Care for Sedation Dentistry?

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

You’ll be given a pill along with instructions for when to take it. You’ll usually be asked to ingest it a matter of hours before the actual appointment, so be sure to have someone you can trust to drive you to and from your dental appointment. You’ll be drowsy, but not unconscious; you’ll still be able to answer simple questions and follow directions as needed. This type of sedation tends to be suitable for those with more severe dental phobias or anxieties.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is a particularly well-known type of sedation that is delivered through a special nasal mask. It can be used to help relieve pain and keep patients calm during a given procedure. We’ll carefully monitor you throughout the visit to make sure that you are receiving the right amount of gas at all times. The effects of the gas go away quickly after the mask has been removed, meaning you can move on with the rest of your day as normal.
