Sedation Dentistry

For patients who are apprehensive about visits to the dentist due to anxiety or fear, we provide sedation dentistry. Dental phobia is extremely common, and can even cause patients to avoid the dentist altogether. Dr. Nguyen is here to help you feel at ease with sedation dentistry! Also known as sleep dentistry, or oral conscious sedation, our sedation dentistry solution will ensure that your next dental visit is the most relaxing one yet!

You may want to consider sedation dentistry for the following issues:

  • Previous traumatic dental experience
  • Fear of needles and drills
  • Strong gag reflex
  • Aversion to dental sounds and smells
  • Resistance to anesthetics

Sedation dentistry is also a great solution for those in need of an involved and complicated dental treatment. Sedation dentistry allows us to complete procedures that would normally take multiple visits in as little as one appointment. Patients with busy, stressful lifestyles can also use sedation dentistry to receive comfortable care in fewer visits.

Dr. Nguyen’s Approach


Dr. Nguyen provides nitrous oxide and oral sedation for our more fearful patients. Nitrous oxide, also known as ‘laughing gas,’ is inhaled through a mask during your treatment which will help you feel completely relaxed during your visit.

Under oral sedation, patients are given an oral sedative prior to their procedure, putting them into a drowsy, sleepy state. We recommend that patients make transportation arrangements for their sedation dentistry visits.

Sedation dentistry is safe and effective. At Lansdowne Dental Care, your oral health is our number one priority, and we will make you as comfortable as possible to receive the care you need.

  • Yes, I would have rather have been going to a spa but then I wouldn't have had my teeth taken care of in such a professional way. The whole experience was perfect!
