The Team to Choose for Sedation Dentistry in Dunstable, MA

If dental anxiety makes receiving treatment difficult or even impossible, you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry. Fortunately, Smiles by Stylos Dental Health & Sleep Center—a trusted practice serving the Greater Merrimack Valley—offers nitrous oxide sedation and oral conscious sedation for residents of Dunstable, Massachusetts, and the surrounding area.

What to Expect With Dental Sedation

When you come into Smiles for Stylos for treatment, be sure to let us know if you experience dental anxiety. After speaking with you about your concerns and learning about your medical history and current condition, we’ll determine whether you could benefit from sedation and suggest an approach that will suit your specific needs.

What happens next will depend on the type of sedation dentistry we recommend. If we opt for oral conscious sedation, we’ll prescribe you medication that you’ll need to take by mouth before your next appointment. This medication will make you feel groggy, and you may even fall asleep during your procedure. Or, if we determine that nitrous oxide sedation (“laughing gas”) is a better fit for your needs, we’ll place a mask over your nose before starting treatment, then administer a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen to help produce a euphoric sensation. A friend or family member will need to drive you home after oral conscious sedation, but not after nitrous oxide sedation.
