Sedation Dentistry – Beachwood, OH
Feel More Comfortable
In The Treatment Chair
A 2012 study published in Medical Principles and Practice estimated that 36 percent of the population was impacted by dental fear and anxiety. If you have a dental phobia, it can keep you from receiving the care you need and preserving the health of your smile. Over time, your fear can lead to worsening oral health problems that cause you discomfort. At Faist & Koops Family Dentistry, our goal is to help you feel at-ease whenever you visit our office, so you can keep your oral health on the right track. That’s why we offer oral conscious and nitrous oxide sedation.

Oral Conscious Sedation
If you have moderate or more severe anxiety, we offer oral conscious sedation. Before your visit, we’ll prescribe you with a pill to take about an hour before you reach our office. That way, when you arrive, you’ll feel calm and at-ease. We’ll guide you back to the room, provide you with the treatment you need, and send you on your way. The effects of this form of sedation can last for a while, so it’s important to plan to have a trusted friend or family member drop you off and pick you up from your appointment.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
We also offer nitrous oxide sedation for patients who have mild to moderate dental fear. When you arrive to our office, we’ll take you back to the treatment room and place a small nose mask on you to administer a colorless, odorless gas that you’ll breathe in. Within a few minutes, you’ll begin to feel a wave of euphoria wash over you, allowing you to feel less anxious and scared. Once we’re finished with your procedure, we’ll remove the mask. Within a few minutes, the effects will begin to wear off, leaving you able to drive home on your own and go about the rest of your day as you normally would.
