Sedation Dentistry
in The Dalles

Put dental anxiety in the past with comprehensive,
in-house sedation options.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry, also known as "sleep dentistry," is an advanced dental practice that uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It's an ideal solution for individuals who experience anxiety or fear when it comes to dental visits. At Columbia River Dental, we, under the expert guidance of Dr. Jonathan Feller, offer different levels of sedation depending on the patient's comfort and the intensity of the procedure. Our aim is to provide a stress-free, painless dental experience to all our patients, making sure they leave our clinic with a bright, confident smile.

The Sedation Dentistry Treatment Process

Consultation and Pre-Procedure Assessment

The first step towards a comfortable dental experience is a thorough consultation and pre-procedure assessment. Dr. Feller will evaluate your overall health, dental anxiety levels, and the complexity of the dental procedure to be performed. This assessment allows us to understand your needs better and to determine the right level of sedation for you. We also answer any questions you might have about the process, ensuring you feel informed and comfortable before moving forward.

Administration of Sedative

On the day of the procedure, we administer the sedative - in this case, Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. It's a mild sedative that is inhaled through a mask placed over your nose. The gas helps you relax and doesn't put you to sleep, so you'll be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. The amount of sedation can be controlled and adjusted to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure.

Dental Procedure and Recovery

Once the sedative takes effect, Dr. Feller and his team will carry out the dental procedure. Thanks to the sedative, you'll be relaxed and comfortable, possibly not even remembering much of the procedure. After the procedure, the effects of the Nitrous Oxide wear off quickly, and you'll be able to drive yourself home. We ensure that the recovery is as smooth and comfortable as the procedure itself.

Anxiety-Free Dental Visits

Sedation dentistry allows patients who have been avoiding the dentist out of fear or anxiety to undergo necessary procedures without worry. The sedative helps create a relaxed, easy-going environment, making the visit a positive experience.

Pain-Free Procedures

Ceramic veneers are a preferred choice for many patients because of their appearance and durability. They also mimic the tooth’s natural appearance, but are thicker and take longer to fabricate.

Quick and Efficient Dental Work

Sedation allows for more efficient dental work since patients are relaxed and still. This means Dr. Feller can work faster and complete procedures in fewer visits, saving you time and making your dental care more efficient.
