Sleep dentistry can be very beneficial for patients who have general anxieties over having work done at the dentist, or who want to asleep during a procedure that is either painful or invasive.
Finding dentists that use sedation in your area can be difficult, but calling our Emergency dentist hotline will give you access to the best sedation dentistry practices in the nation. Our hotline is easy to use and free to call.
For patients who have a fear of the dentist, sedation dentistry is an option that can alleviate a stressful situation for the patient, the dentist, and the staff. Treatments and procedures are easier for the patient to get through and easier for the dentist and the staff to complete.
Contrary to general belief, sedation dentistry is very safe, highly effective, and is administered by a professional by using an IV drip into the patient’s bloodstream. It’s the most effective way to sedate the patient while they can relax and prepare to drift off.
Sedation dentistry becomes of great importance when patients are too scared to see the dentist to have work done, even if there is a problem that is causing them great pain. Though pain, or any other critical factor, may be known and present in a patient’s current oral health situation, even that is sometimes not enough to push their fear and anxieties aside.
Thankfully, sedation dentistry not only allows the patient to relax during their appointment, but IV sedation typically includes post partial amnesia. This means that the patient will not remember much, if not any, of what occurred during their appointment.
The amount of time that is spent at the appointment is practically cut in half for the patient, as well. Because they don’t recall much or any of the appointment because of the sedation, it will seem like they sat down, fell asleep even though the patients don’t actually sleep, and was ready to leave not even five minutes later. This helps patients with anxiety greatly, as well.
Finding a dentistry that offers sedation isn’t as easy as you think it would be. Although, there are ways to find dentist oral sedation practices near you without having to endlessly Google “sleep dentistry near me”.
There are online directories and engines available for you that can help connect you to a sedation dentist either in your area or relatively close to your location.
For example, SedationCare.com has information on both American and Canadian options for sleep dentistry. All you have to do is input your postal or zip code, the country you live in, and the distance of how far you are willing or are able to go.
Our hotline and conducting a basic search on Google are also ways to figure out what your options are.
Unfortunately, emergency sedation dentists in your area can be difficult to find. With any dental emergency, sometimes your options to get treatment are slim to none, which is why we have our 24/7 dentist hotline to help you find a dentist near you.
Call the number, give some basic information, and you’ll be directed to the closest sedation dentist to either your area or relatively close to it.

What is sleep dentistry?
In short, sleep dentistry is the use of sedation through an IV drip into the patient’s bloodstream to help ease their fears and anxieties of being at the dentist and having work done on them.
Are you asleep during sleep dentistry?
No, you’re not asleep during sleep or sedative dentistry, but it will feel like you are or were after the fact. You will feel sleepy, groggy, and pretty much out of it, as if you’re exhausted and drifting off to sleep.
How are patients sedated during sleep dentistry?
Your dentist will either have you inhale what they call “laughing gas”, or they will give you an IV drip that goes directly into your bloodstream to sedate you. Both of these methods are safe, effective, and administered by a professional.
Which method is more effective?
For those who want the least memorable appointment as possible for whatever reason, the IV drip method is the way to go. It has a higher chance of eliminating the possibility for patients feeling any anxiety or pain, and, more often than not, leaves them in a state of minor amnesia after they are fully conscious and aware again.
Is sleep dentistry safe for children?
Not only is sleep dentistry safe for children to undergo, it’s actually highly recommended for treatments and procedures that are usually very complicated for children to undergo.
For example, if a child needs to have a tooth pulled, but they don’t want to by any means necessary and have a fear of the dentist that causes the dentist to struggle with the procedure, sleep dentistry can help relax the child and allow the dentist to do what needs to be done.
Sleep dentistry is a beneficial option for all ages, anxiety levels, you name it.
Are there any side effects of sleep dentistry?
Typically there are two side effects that occur after sleep dentistry. The first is that some people tend to get the hiccups for a couple of minutes while it has a chance to fully wear off. Second, a lot of people will experience dry mouth.
However, these side effects occur while the sedative is wearing off, so if you do experience either, or both, of these side effects you probably won’t even remember them.
