Sedation Dentistry in Eau Claire

Regis Court Dental Associates offers clients a wide variety of services to make their visit relaxing and comfortable. That's why we offer sedation dentistry in Eau Claire. Sedation dentistry provides safe, comfortable dental treatment for patients with special needs. Sometimes called relaxation dentistry, this is a method of managing pain and anxiety during professional dental care through the use of medication.

You can benefit from sedation dentistry if you experience one or more of the following:

  • High fear of dental care
  • Complex dental problems
  • Traumatic dental experiences
  • Fear of needles and shots
  • Trouble getting numb
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Gag reflex

The two most common types are:

  • 1. Oral Conscious Sedation
  • 2. Inhalation Sedation

Oral Conscious Sedation

Through this method you will experience very deep relaxation while still being conscious. Your doctor will provide you with an oral medication that is easy to swallow, safe, and low cost. Most adults will receive Halcion (triazolam), though children are usually given a liquid medication like Versed (Midazolam). When the medication takes effect, you will be able to speak and respond to external requests.

Inhalation Sedation

Here we use Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen (laughing gas) to help your body achieve a relaxed state. This is the most popular form of sedation used in dentistry today.

Friendly and Accepting

I am always fearful when I have dental appointments and don't know what will be done. Dr. Henson and the staff at Regis Dental are so accepting of "big babies" like myself...and they put you at ease right away. I always think they won't remember how anxious and nervous I am. BUT...after a few minutes of talking with any of them, I feel relaxed. I don't think I will…
