Criscione Family Dentistry | Sedation in Lake Oswego



Sedation Dentistry



Sedation dentistry is ideal for many patients. It offers the ability to relax and have procedures done in comfort and with reduced anxiety.

What if you could finally receive your dental treatment while relaxing?

Criscione Family Dental offers sedation dentistry for treating people that have dental phobia and anxiety. We offer different types of sedation dentistry. These include administering oral sedation (a prescription pill) and nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

What is Sedation Dentistry ?

The patient is given oral medication about one hour before your appointment. The medicine puts you in a light state of sedation. You will feel relaxed, some patients even sleep through procedures.

Patients that choose sedation will meet with your provider in advance of the treatment appointment to determine your needs. Consent forms will be reviewed and signed and all financial transactions will be made at that time. You will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment and to stay with you for the remainder of the day. (Patients cannot be transported by taxi or a transportation company while under sedation) Once you arrive at the office, you will be able to rest comfortably in the dental chair. We have blankets, pillows and safety glasses for your comfort.

If dental procedures cause you anxiety, please discuss your options with our providers. We will be happy to recommend the best options for you.
