Sedation Can Give You an Excellent Dental Experience

Dental sedation is one of the greatest innovations in dentistry. With it, patients who experience dental fear can relax and receive much-needed dental care, including root canals, dental implants, and other procedures. These patients will also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with taking care of their oral health needs. At River Valley Endodontics, we offer options for sedation. We’ll help you decide which one will work best for your situation. Your choices include:


  • Inhaled Sedation – You’ll breathe in sweet-smelling laughing gas through a comfortable mask, and in moments you’ll begin to feel relaxed from head to toe. The gas will give you a feeling of lightness and euphoria, and you won’t worry about your dental work any longer. Best of all, the gas will wear off quickly afterward, so you’ll be able to drive yourself home safely.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – Dr. Reeh will prescribe a small pill for you to take before your procedure. By the time we’re set to begin work, you’ll feel very relaxed and maybe even a bit groggy. You’ll remain awake and able to communicate with our team, although some patients do become so relaxed that they doze off. A friend or family member will need to drive you home afterward, as the pill will take several hours to wear off.

When you need sedation options in Stillwater for your endodontic care, you’ll find what you’re looking for at River Valley Endodontics. Call us today at 651-370-9498 to schedule an appointment. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Sedation Options

What sedation options are available for me?

At River Valley Endodontics, most of our patients who opt for sedation choose either inhaled sedation with laughing gas or oral conscious sedation in pill form. Both of these work great at eliminating dental anxiety. You won’t worry about anything during your procedure with this type of sedation, although most patients don’t require it to ease their fears.

Is dental sedation safe?

Yes, dental sedation is completely safe, especially in the hands of our competent and trained team. There should be nothing to worry about when you choose to be sedated for your procedure. We’ll monitor you during and after your procedure to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible and you don’t feel any discomfort.

Are there any side effects of dental sedation?

There are generally no serious side effects of dental sedation. After oral conscious sedation, you may feel groggy, so a trusted friend or family member will need to drive you home afterward. The effects will take a few hours to wear off, but you should feel completely normal before you know it. For inhaled sedation, the effects wear off so quickly that you can safely drive yourself home.

What should I expect after dental sedation?

If you choose inhaled sedation with laughing gas, the effects of the sedative will vanish immediately after your exam or procedure. You should have no problem safely driving yourself home. With oral conscious sedation, the pill’s effects will linger for a few hours, so you’ll need a trusted friend or family member to drive you home afterward.
