Sleep Dentistry Cambridge

Sleep Through Your Dental Appointments

As many patients may feel anxious about dental appointments or may have a fear that apprehends them from seeking care, Dr. Natt is specially trained in providing I.V Sedation. This form of sedation puts patients in a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on. It allows patients to safely seek treatment in a comforting manner.

Who Can Benefit From Sleep Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry offers numerous advantages for people who experience significant anxiety when visiting the dentist. If you haven’t visited the dentist for years and worry about treatment discomfort, or you dislike the sounds of dental tools - this one’s for you. Sedation dentistry can be an excellent solution for patients who are receiving lengthy treatments.

Don’t hold back on getting the dental care you deserve, come visit Dr. Natt to see if this is the right option for you.

Relaxing Oral Sedation & Sleep Dentistry, Carefree Dental Care

Oral sedation and sleep dentistry can be beneficial for most child, teen, or adult patients of Cambridge Smiles Family Dentistry if they suffer from fear of the dentist or dental care anxiety. Also, it is crucial to anyone with neurodivergence, any medical ailments, or an extreme gag reflex that prevents non-sedative treatment. In other words, sedation lets people just have their appointment and not be aware of what's happening or remember it. If these options sound like it would benefit you, give us a call to schedule an appointment for the care you need.

What Types of Sedation Treatment in Cambridge Are Available to You?

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Laughing gas or nitrous oxide will be administered through a mask along with oxygen. This gas induces relaxation, and our team will regulate the level of sedation according to your needs. If you’re worried about driving yourself home post the procedure, rest assured, as the effects of the gas wear off rapidly and in a very safe manner.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation can vary from minimal to moderate, depending on the total dose administered. For minimal sedation, the dentists will give you a pill approximately an hour before the procedure, which will induce drowsiness throughout the procedure. With moderate oral sedation, some individuals may become groggy enough to fall asleep during the procedure but can easily be awakened with a gentle shake.

IV Sedation (Full Sleep)

Here our experienced anesthesia team will deliver the medication through an Intravenous Line (I.V.), which induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on. You will experience anterograde amnesia – which means you won’t remember the experience after the drug is administered, until it wears off. There will be a Registered Nurse monitoring vitals as well as offering support post treatment as you recover.
