At My Family Dental - Southfield in Southfield, MI, we’ll make sure that you’re completely comfortable during your visit.

Sedation dentistry is the use of sedative medication to help you relax during a dental procedure. If undergoing dental care gives you anxiety, sedation dentistry may be an appropriate option for you. Sedation also helps dental professionals provide more treatment during your dental appointment. We have various soothing sedation dentistry options at our Southfield, MI office. Your level of anxiety helps determine the right sedation solution to meet your unique needs.

Common reasons patients choose sedation dentistry:

  • Dental-related fears or anxieties
  • Past traumatic dental experiences
  • Difficulty with standard numbing
  • Strong gag reflex
  • Fear of needles or shots
  • Extremely sensitive teeth

There are various types of sedation dentistry options, in our Southfield, MI office we provide the following for you.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is one of the most well-known forms of sedation, and it’s ideal for patients with mild to moderate feelings of anxiety or discomfort. At My Family Dental - Southfield we’ll administer the gas in our Southfield, MI office through a mask that fits over the nose, and within a few minutes, patients should begin to fall into a deeply relaxed, almost euphoric state.

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Oral sedation dentistry is as simple as taking an aspirin, and it’s a good sedation choice for patients who struggle with moderate to severe dental phobia. This method won’t render you unconscious – instead, you’ll enter a deep state of comfort that still allows you to respond to commands from the My Family Dental - Southfield team.

IV Sedation Dentistry

IV sedation dentistry is an excellent choice for patients with severe anxiety or fear regarding dental care. You’ll still be awake during your procedure and able to respond to commands from the My Family Dental - Southfield dental team as we work. However, you will enter a heightened state of relaxation that may have an amnesic effect once the procedure is over. Your safety is always our number one concern at My Family Dental - Southfield! After undergoing IV sedation, you will need someone to drive you home from our Southfield, MI office and keep an eye on you for the rest of the day.
