Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any other questions? We have the answers. Call us at (503) 581-4615.

What types of sedation do you offer?

We offer Nitrous and Oral sedation.

  • Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, helps you relax during treatment.
  • Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed pill before your appointment to ease anxiety.

Is sedation dentistry safe for everyone?

Sedation dentistry is safe for most patients. Our skilled Salem sedation dentists carefully assess your health history and current condition to choose the safest sedation option for you.

Who can benefit from sedation dentistry?

Sedation is helpful for anyone who experiences dental anxiety, has a low pain threshold, needs a large amount of dental work, or has a strong gag reflex. It makes the dental experience easier and more comfortable.

How do I prepare for a procedure involving sedation?

Preparation depends on the type of sedation. Generally, you may need to fast for a few hours before your appointment if you’re receiving oral sedation. We provide specific instructions based on your needs and the type of sedation used.

Will I feel any pain with sedation dentistry?

One of the primary benefits of sedation dentistry is the reduction of discomfort and pain. Our goal is to make sure you feel nothing during the procedure. You might feel groggy afterward, but there should be no pain!

How long does recovery from sedation usually take?

Recovery time varies depending on the type of sedation used. Nitrous oxide wears off quickly, often within minutes after the procedure ends. Oral sedation may require a longer recovery time, and you’ll need someone to drive you home.

Can I go back to work after receiving sedation dentistry?

After nitrous oxide, you may be able to go back to work as it wears off quickly. However, if you receive oral sedation, we recommend taking the day off as it can take several hours for the full effects to wear off.
