Sedation Dentistry in Bellevue
If you are afraid of the dentist, you’re not alone. At Brilliant Smiles Bellevue, we believe in treating the patient first and the procedure second. Comfort in care is a premium service we provide with several Bellevue Sedation Dentistry options.
We understand that all of our patients are unique and require different levels of sedation. That is why we offer:
- Anxiolysis: For the mildly fearful patient, Anxiolysis involves taking a pill by mouth prior to your Bellevue dental visit. This level of sedation dentistry only calms your nerves and is used for basic care and in non-fearful patients who will have longer appointments.
- Oral Conscious Sedation: A deeper form of Anxiolysis, this level of Bellevue sedation dentistry is taken prior to your appointment and will leave you feeling completely relaxed. We will then escort you to your treatment suite and recline you in one of our comfortable chairs where you can kick off your shoes and cover up with a blanket. You will then be left to relax and drift off until you reach a comfortable level so that treatment can begin.
- Intravenous Conscious Sedation: This is the deepest level of sedation we offer. We will begin with oral conscious sedation, which will leave you feeling completely relaxed. After you have kicked back and relaxed under a blanket, you will inhale Nitrous oxide gas to relax you even more. We will then administer medication through an IV drip to allow you to reach a state of total relaxation.
