Sedation Learning Center

Free Laughing Gas!

Dental anxiety often keeps patients from receiving the dental care they need. The stress and fear can be too much to handle and consequently, some patients avoid the dentist altogether. This can lead to cavities and other oral issues that could be prevented with consistent dental check-ups. If you find yourself struggling with anxiety even through short dental visits, consider sedation dentistry! Sedation dentistry can help you feel completely relaxed throughout your entire visit and makes your appointment seem as though it was only a few minutes long.

Sedation dentistry is the use of safe and effective medications to eliminate any nervousness and discomfort that patients may experience while undergoing a dental procedure. Sedation dentistry has been proven to provide relief for tens of thousands of patients. At Oak Creek Dental Care, we offer IV Sedation, administered via IV.

IV Sedation will last throughout your procedure and for some time after your appointment is complete. Although you will be able to get up and walk out of the office, you will still need to have a loved one present to drive you home.

Sedation dentistry helps you feel deeply relaxed and comfortable. You will not feel any fear or anxiety and surrounding sounds and smells will not bother you. You may feel drowsy and only remember moments from your appointment, or possibly not even remember the appointment at all. The sedation helps the appointment seem as if it only lasted a few minutes!

Many patients who have suffered from dental anxiety are finally able to relax through their visits and complete necessary dental treatment. Being able to complete dental treatment and restore a healthy smile has helped countless patients live comfortably and confidently. Give us a call for more information today!

What Others Are Saying

“Having been totally afraid of the dentist since a child, going to Oak Creek Dental Care has been wonderful, and I’m not half as afraid as I used to be. Everyone is so pleasant and caring at every appointment. My dentist is a very nice guy who makes sure I know everything he is doing even when I have laughing gas. Couldn’t ask for a better group of people!!!”

“I was in search of a great dental office for many years after high school. I was referred to Oak Creek Dental Care for their excellent attention to detail, gentle care, and great results. I’m happy to say those were all tried and true praises. I’ve been a patient there now, for over 7 years. Dr. McDuffee & Dr. Segnini are the best! The girls in the office are also fantastic. They make you feel at home, even when I was dreading my procedures. The conscious sedation option is also a huge bonus. I’d definitely sign up for that if I needed anything major done.”
