Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry uses anti-anxiety medication to put you in a deep state of relaxation and comfort. Plus, you won’t be hyperaware of your surroundings or the tasks at hand, making time go by very quickly.

It’s especially helpful if you have:

  • Dental anxiety or fear
  • Fear of needles
  • Extremely sensitive teeth
  • Physical disorders
  • Difficulty getting numb through other methods
  • Complex or multiple dental treatments

At Croadaile Dental Arts, we offer oral conscious sedation.

This level of sedation will help you remain calm and prevent you from feeling pain. You’ll likely have little memory of the visit afterward, and you may even fall asleep during your appointment.

How Sedation Dentistry Helps You

Improve Health

Poor oral health is linked to overall health problems, like heart disease and strokes. Sedation dentistry helps you overcome barriers stopping you from getting the dental care you need.

Get Out of Pain

Toothaches? Discomfort when chewing? Headaches or jaw pain? Sedation empowers you to address the root cause of your pain and get you back to feeling your best, healthy self.

Boost Confidence

Dentistry is for your mental and emotional health too! Sedation will help you through restorative or cosmetic dental work to improve your smile’s appearance.

Overcome Fear

Often, the first step is the hardest: visiting the dentist. But with sedation dentistry, you can eliminate those nerves, and let us show you how painless and trustworthy dentistry can be.

‘‘Total dental fear. I can honestly say that this was the best experience I've ever had in a dental office. Everyone was wonderful, kind, patient, offered honest solutions, etc. I have no qualms about going back - and that's amazing!’’

FAQs About Sedation Dentistry

Answered by our caring dental team.

  • Is sedation dentistry safe?

    Yes, dental sedation prescribed by our trained dentists is safe.

    During your appointment, we closely monitor you to ensure your comfort and safety.

    We also request you have someone drive you home afterward because the sedative drugs take some time to wear off.

  • Are you asleep during conscious sedation?

    No. Unlike general anesthesia, conscious sedation isn’t meant to put you to sleep.

    However, because you may feel so calm or drowsy, you may naturally fall asleep.

  • Can you still feel pain when sedated?

    Typically, no. You shouldn’t feel pain when sedated.

    A local anesthetic is often used in tandem with dental sedation to ensure your comfort.

    Sometimes you may feel pressure, but it shouldn’t cause you discomfort.

    If you feel pain, let us know right away. We’ll adjust your level of sedation, anesthetic, or treatment techniques to keep you comfy.

  • Can you feel anything during conscious sedation?

    You won’t feel pain with oral conscious sedation.

    However, you may feel a tingling sensation throughout your body or a heavy sluggishness that makes it hard to move your limbs.

    Overall, you’ll feel very relaxed and drowsy.

  • How much does it cost to be sedated for dental work?

    It depends on factors like insurance, the length of your appointment, etc.

    To discuss costs, contact our friendly team.

  • Are you accepting new patients?

    Yes! Our dentists love welcoming new patients into our dental family.

    Our office is located in Durham, NC and serves patients from nearby communities, including Raleigh, Hillsborough, Chapel Hill, Mebane, Timberlake, Roxboro, and Carrboro.
