Sedation Dentistry

At Smiles by Steedman in Lake Stevens, we have the ability to provide you with a comfortable and relaxing visit, even if you have dental anxiety! Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective method of helping you feel relaxed during your treatment. We provide two convenient methods of sedation here:

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, often referred to as laughing gas, is available for individuals of all ages. The effects of the nitrous wear off soon after your treatment, so you can go about your day as normal after your visit. You can even drive yourself home (if you are old enough to drive). Nitrous oxide may be right for you if you have:

  • Fear or anxiety of visiting the dentist
  • A need for extensive treatment

Nitrous oxide can help you enjoy your visit to the dentist no matter what your age or dental anxiety. Children can greatly benefit from the use of nitrous oxide during their appointment.  Call us today for more information on nitrous oxide.


Prescription Intraoral Sedation

Should you choose intraoral sedation, Dr. Steedman will prescribe a sedative. Usually a small pill, you will take this sedative about an hour before your visit at Smiles by Steedman. A friend or family member will have to drive you to and from your appointment because by the time you arrive, you will be completely relaxed. Prescription oral sedation is a good option for anyone who:

  • Has dental anxieties
  • Dislikes the smells and noises associated with dentistry
  • Has a difficult time sitting still
  • Requires a significant amount of treatment
