We know some patients might have had negative dental experiences in the past, but with Leavitt Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, the leader in sedation dentistry Pocatello residents can trust, we want you to know that does not always have to be the case. Patients who have had poor experiences in the past are excited to learn that we offer sedation dentistry, which means our patients have the option to have their dental needs met while they sleep.
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during
dental procedures. There are different levels of sedation dentistry which can be a benefit during any or all dental procedures. With IV sedation for complex dental procedures or oral surgery, we are able to streamline the processes and make procedures more comfortable for our patients. Procedures, including fillings, root canals and implants can now be performed while the patient is asleep and unaware of the procedure. In addition, all sedation dentistry procedures are performed in our office. Dr. Leavitt, a highly trained and certified IV conscious sedation dentist, offers services that allow our patients to rest comfortably
while their dental work is completed. With this technology, we have provided comfortable dental services to hundreds of patients who have slept through their entire procedure. For patients who require a lighter level of sedation, we offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide. Whether you are having your teeth cleaned or having a root canal, light oral sedation, in combination with nitrous oxide, can help you relax while your treatment is provided.
When having any type of sedation appointment, you must have someone bring you safely to the office and take you home. Additionally, someone must remain with you to monitor your recovery after the treatment is complete. When combined with oxygen, nitrous oxide gas might be a helpful means for relaxation during dental treatment. The gas combination is inhaled, which causes the desired relaxation. This form of sedation is popular because there are no lingering effects from the sedation, which means you will be able to drive yourself home following your dental appointment. Many patients use this means of relaxation during their routine cleanings or periodontal care.
