What if you could have all your dentistry needs, that you have been putting off for years, done in the conventional dental office in one or two comfortable visits? What if you could finally receive all of the treatment while sleeping free of fear and pain?
At LC Smiles Family Dentistry in Lewiston, ID, we specialize in Sedation Dentistry and Sleep Dentistry, treating people with dental phobias and anxieties. We offer several different types of sedation dentistry including administering oral sedation, intravenous (IV) sedation, IV sedation and nitrous oxide (N2O) to deliver a combination of drugs. The choice lies with each specific patient’s needs. Through sedation, both the patient and dentist are comfortable providing and receiving the best possible dental care while being safe and free of stress and pain.
Complex dental treatments that often require six or more appointments can be done in as little as one appointment—all while you sleep!
What is Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry?
The patient is given oral medication about one hour before their appointment. The medicine puts the patient in a light state of sedation and they will sleep through the dental appointment. When you wake, your dental treatment will be completed.
Is it safe?
Yes! Once you arrive, you will be allowed to rest comfortably in a warm, quiet room under a cozy blanket. During your entire appointment, our staff will closely monitor you to ensure your safety. Though you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
