Anesthesia at Smile Source North Side

Our team can provide anesthesia for complex procedures or to alleviate discomfort and dental anxiety. Local anesthesia is typically administered for less invasive procedures or when the patient will be awake during surgery. Anesthesia is considered safe and effective for patients of all ages. Our team always carefully reviews patients' medical history to determine the healthiest plan for treatment and sedation dentistry. 

At Smile Source North Side, we also offer various dentistry options, including:  

Oral Conscious Sedation

Smile Source offers oral conscious sedation in the form of a pill to help anxious patients relax during treatment. This sedation can be used as a mild or moderate sedative, providing varying levels of relaxation. With mild sedation, patients feel drowsy but are still conscious and responsive. Moderate sedation may induce a deeper level of relaxation, sometimes causing patients to fall into a light sleep. The type of sedation used depends on the patient's level of anxiety and the complexity of the dental procedure.

Laughing Gas Sedation

Laughing gas, or inhalation sedation, is a light form of sedation. It is administered as a colorless, odor-free gas through a breathing mask, with the amount controlled by the dentist for safety and comfort. With laughing gas, patients are fully relaxed but still awake and able to follow instructions. This form of sedation is often recommended for patients who experience anxiety, fear or restlessness when it comes to receiving dental care.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is offered to patients with extreme dental anxiety or those undergoing oral surgery or a more complex procedure. It involves administering anti-anxiety medication directly into the veins to promote relaxation and gradually induce a sleep-like state for a more comfortable procedure. Patients often experience relaxation and temporary memory loss, and our dentists will adjust the medication as needed during treatment. 

After your procedure, the IV is removed, and patients are taken to recovery rooms to wake up. Patients will need to have someone available to accompany the patient home after their appointment with IV sedation.
