Sedation Dentistry

In sedation dentistry, anxiety is generally controlled with the help of medications or gasses such as nitrous oxide.

Regardless of which type of sedation you receive, you'll typically need a local anesthetic, numbing medication at the site in the mouth to relieve pain.


Inhaled Sedation

The inhaled form of sedation is achieved by breathing nitrous oxide and oxygen gas combination through a small mask placed gently over your nose. By controlling the percentage or levels of each gas allows Dr. Lyashenko to custom tailor the level of sedation/anxiety control required for each patient and any given procedure.

This form of sedation is proven to be safe and convenient for patients as it allows them to drive to the appointment and back home safely due to its unique ability to wear off quickly.

Oral Sedation

Depending on the dose and type of medication prescribed, oral sedation can provide a wider range of sedation. Typically, the patient is directed to take one or two pills an hour or so prior to their appointment.  This allows Dr. Lyashenko to tailor the comfort level desired for any given patient and procedure to be performed.
