Choose the Right Sedation Option for Your Dental Service

Sometimes you only need to take the edge off a little bit to receive treatment. But it could benefit both you and Dr. Gleave if you’re fully sedated for procedures that require a lengthier visit. We’ll help you determine which of the following options are best for you to receive the care your smile requires.

  • Inhaled sedation– This form of light sedation provides major benefits with no hassles. It wears off quickly so you can go about your day; you can even drive yourself home. It’s so safe that even children can use it.
  • Oral sedation– We’ve been providing oral sedation for nearly 20 years. Taken as a pill, it is stronger than inhaled sedation. It allows you to remain awake and ask Dr. Gleave questions or make requests, but you’ll feel no discomfort and will be just on the brink of sleep. You’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home.
  • IV sedation– This is our highest level of sedation. It allows you to snooze throughout your procedure while remaining conscious. You’ll be closely monitored while we help your smile.
