Sedation Dentistry in High Point, NC

Dental sedation is the use of medicine designed to reduce physical pain associated with treatment or to reduce anxiety and help you feel more relaxed while dental work is being completed. This makes the experience more pleasant and ensures our staff can perform their duties more effectively. We offer dental sedation in laughing gas, oral, IV, and general anesthesia. We bring in a dental anesthesiologist to provide many of our sedation services so you can be confident our techniques are up-to-date, safe, and tailored to your needs.

  • What is laughing gas and what does it do?

    Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, is a sedative gas used in dentistry to induce relaxation and minimize discomfort during procedures. It is the most minimal form of sedation that produces a euphoric effect, reducing anxiety and the levels of pain. We can easily control the sedation level, and its effects wear off quickly after the gas is stopped, allowing patients to recover rapidly with minimal after-effects. This makes it a safe and effective option for both adults and children.

  • What types of anesthesia are used for dental work?

    At High Point Dental Partners, we offer two types of anesthesia—local anesthesia and sedation. Local anesthesia numbs a specific area of the mouth for painless treatment while sedation, including oral sedatives, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and intravenous (IV) sedation, helps patients relax or sleep through procedures.

    We work to ensure all dental treatments are as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible. Call us today for a pain-free visit!

  • What should I expect with IV Sedation?

    IV sedation offers a stress-free experience for patients who experience anxiety or fear related to visiting the dentist. It allows for deeper sedation levels to be achieved quickly and adjusted in real-time, ensuring patient comfort throughout the procedure. This method significantly enhances the ability to undergo complex or lengthy dental treatments by minimizing discomfort and memory of the procedure. This is a valuable option for patients seeking a more comfortable dental experience. You will need someone to drive you home from your visit.
