Do you have a dental fear or anxiety?

Then sedation dentistry may be the solution you have been looking for.

With sedation dentistry, you can get the smile you want without all the stress. Sedatives allow you to relax during your appointment and keep your mind off of the task at hand.

Want your new smile faster?

We also use sedation dentistry to help patients get their new smile faster. With sedatives, we can perform multiple procedures during one appointment, like dental implants and cosmetic dentistry services.

Your Redmond cosmetic dentist, Dr. Shawn Keller offers three types of sedation:

  • Nitrous oxide

  • Oral sedation

  • IV sedation

Which Sedation Option Is Best for You?

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, offers a light level of sedation. You breathe it in through a mask during your procedure, which leaves you completely relaxed but cognizant of your surroundings. Patients like this sedative because there are no side effects and you can drive home afterward.

Oral sedation is a great option for nerves or wanting more procedures at once!
Oral Sedation

Oral sedation offers different levels of relaxation depending on the prescribed dosage by Dr. Keller. You can expect to experience some drowsiness with mild to moderate levels of consciousness. Time will fly by and you’ll only be left with vague memories. This is a perfect option if you would like to get your new smile faster by having multiple procedures during one appointment.

IV Sedation

For those with severe dental fear or anxiety, you might prefer to be unconscious during your appointment. If that is the case, we bring in trained professionals to administer IV sedation. It will put you to sleep, leaving you with no memory of the procedure(s). Most of our patients prefer to be semi-conscious, for which we prescribe oral sedation.

Why Patients Love Sedation Dentistry in Redmond, WA

Multiple Procedures

Typically, more complex procedures are spread out over two or more appointments. But with sedation dentistry, we perform multiple procedures during one appointment and reduce the number of times you have to visit us.

Finally Relax

Some patients have avoided the dentist for years because of dental fear or anxiety. But sedation dentistry has allowed them to finally relax in the chair and let their smiles get the attention it deserves.

Pain-Free

We often find that a fear of the dentist comes from a fear of pain. With sedation dentistry, we are able to help patients overcome their fear of the dentist by offering them a relaxed, pain-free experience.

Smile Faster

The quicker you get your procedures done, the quicker you will be to having your new smile. Sedation dentistry is a great option for those who want to see their smile results faster.

I grew up with poor dental care, which created a fear of dentists. I was finally ready for a change. My choice to come to Dr. Keller was by far THE BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE. I am forever grateful for my new life and my gorgeous smile!!! I recommend that if you are on the fence to make changes to your mouth and smile, please come see Dr. Keller! I promise you will be glad you did.
