What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry makes hours seem like minutes. Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center knows the dentist's office can feel like a scary place to some. That's why our sedation dentistry provides an amnesic effect. You will undergo treatment, but the sedation will keep you from feeling, smelling, or hearing what goes on during your appointment.

Recover From Sedation Dentistry

With Sedation Dentistry, you can regain your health and have the fabulous smile you've always wanted. You don't have to be afraid of the dentist anymore.

Turn Back The Hands Of Time

Whether you have a broken tooth, yellow teeth, missing teeth, or pain points, our sedation dentistry can help you sit back and relax.

Sedation Dentistry Works With Your Budget

Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center works to maximize your insurance benefits and make convenient financial agreements that feel as comfortable as sedation dentistry.

How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

1. Make Your Appointment

Scheduling a dentist's appointment is a daunting task for an anxious person, but the hard part is over when you schedule.  Our caring team has the answers to help you with the first steps.

2. Come for a Welcome Visit

Our experts are here to help you, never to judge you.  We'll gather information about your health and discuss your goals. Once we're on the same page, we'll take any needed X-rays.  Some patients want sedation for the initial examination.

3. Prepare for Your Sedation Visit

Once Dr. Spurling and the team at Light Touch Dental have designed a plan that works for you, you receive step-by-step instructions so that you know exactly what to expect and what to do to make your appointment a success.

4. Arrive for Treatment

For deeper sedation, your loved one will drive you. Sedation dentistry can make you feel a little tired, and you'll relax easier knowing someone can safely drive you to and from your appointment. You will be greeted by your anethesia team who will guide you through the entire process.

5. Go Home!

As soon as your appointment ends, we'll work with you and your companion to send you on your way safely. They will drive you home and allow you to rest until you're recovered.

6. Recover Quickly

Many patients recover from sedation dentistry by the following day. They rarely report discomfort or residual side effects.

Who Benefits From Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a feasible option for many people. All can benefit from it, yet Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center notices it's popular among a few crowds. These include the elderly, the disabled, and the fearful.

The Elderly

Sedation dentistry can benefit anyone. Yet Dr. Spurling and the team at Light Touch Dental recognize that certain groups of people find it especially beneficial.

The Fearful

Dental phobia is not a made-up term; it's an overwhelming reality for thousands of patients. It's why those who have avoided the dentist for years out of fear, feel welcome and relieved at Light Touch Dental. Any negative sensations you remember from getting dental work in the past disappear with sedation in the hands of our expert, caring team. Our patients can relax and no longer have to experience extreme anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist.

If you believe you have dental phobia, you will find solutions when you visit Dr. Spurling and the team at Light Touch Dental. We will make sure your appointment feels as low stress as possible.

Patients with Medical Conditions

Your health and safety are our first priority.  Balancing dental treatment with existing health conditions and medications can be a complex task.  Patients with diabetes and heart disease are especially vulnerable to the stress of dental procedures.  A trained sedation team that understands your unique conditions and takes the stress out of the appointment provides a much safer level of care for you.

The Busy Professional or Parent

Taking time off of work or finding a babysitter for multiple appointments can be an expensive challenge.  If your road to a healthy mouth requires several appointments that amounts to hours in the dental chair, sedation is your solution.  Dr. Spurling and the Light Touch Dental team can accomplish much more for you under sedation in one appointment.  This saves you the cost and hassle of rearranging your schedule and minimizes time away from work or paying for child care.
