Dental anxiety, or the fear of dental treatments is one of the major reasons why people tend to neglect their oral health and their visits to the dentist’s office. At Prescott Family Dentistry, we can give you a comfortable and anxiety-free dental experience through our state-of-the-art sedation dentistry services.

Sedation Dentistry refers to the administration of sedatives prior to a dental procedure to help patients relax and remain free of anxiety during treatment. Sedation could be administered in any of the following forms:

  • Nitrous Oxide sedation – In this method, you are made to breathe a mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a mask which covers your nose. Nitrous Oxide, also commonly known as laughing gas, helps you relax. The amount of sedation can be varied during the course of the procedure. The effect of the gas wears off soon after the mask is withdrawn.
  • Oral Sedation- This comes in the form of a small pill which is taken orally before your dental procedure.
  • IVSedation – In intravenous or IV sedation, the sedative is transmitted directly into the blood stream. This form of sedation is used for long and complex dental procedures.

What are the benefits of sedation dentistry?

  • Helps in overcoming fear and anxiety – sedatives help patients relax so that their dental procedures can be carried out with ease. With dental sedation, even patients who have low pain tolerance will not feel much discomfort; they may even have little or no memory of the procedure.
  • Your dental treatment can be completed quickly and easily– Undergoing sedation allows you to smoothly sail through lengthy dental procedures without pain and discomfort.

Our Happy Customers

"I have nothing but fantastic things to say about this practice. The entire office is just phenomenal - everyone is warm, welcoming, personable, and very customer service oriented. They all remember you when you come in, they engage in friendly conversation and above all, strive to make you feel comfortable. Dr. Prescott is simply wonderful and there is nothing bad that I can say about my experiences with him. My husband and children are also patients, and although we relocated from Fort Mill,SC to Waxhaw, NC it is totally worth the drive to continue under Dr. Prescott's care. I've even referred several of my new neighbors to the practice... they all thought I was nuts to be referring them so far down the road. After their visits, they all raved about Dr. Prescott and his staff and thanked me for referring them. BTW - my kids are 14, 15 and almost 4. Dr. Prescott & team finds a way to connect with each of them despite the age differences. My youngest had his first cleaning here and can't wait to go back to the "mouth doctor"!!"
