Sedation Dentistry In Post Falls, ID
Conscious Sedation, also known as “Oral Sedation” may be the answer for many patients who feel anxiety or nervousness at the thought of having dental treatment done. Imagine not having to worry about that feeling and getting your treatment done in as little as one visit while you are sedated!
IV Sedation “Sleep Dentistry” is an option for those patients who want to sleep thru their dental appointments in comfort! This service is provided by a certified anesthesia provider.
Those who undergo conscious or IV sedation typically do not feel anxiety or pain, and they rarely have any memory of the actual dental procedure.
Give us a call to learn more about Sedation Dentistry options available at our practice. We want to make your dental treatments as pleasant as possible!

How is Conscious Sedation Administered?

How is IV Sedation Administered?
A certified anesthesia provider will provide sedation through IV. For both conscious and IV sedation, one of our staff members will be at your side during your entire treatment to ensure your comfort and safety. You will never be left alone. Your vital signs will be monitored throughout your visit.
What Type of Dental Treatment Can Be Accomplished While Sedated?
Because you will be completely comfortable, we can accomplish quite a bit during a single dental appointment. We can do a full mouth reconstruction or a single procedure such as crowns, veneers, fillings, tooth whitening, dentures, extractions, implants, deep cleanings, etc.
