Sedation Provides A More Positive Dental Experience
Dental sedation puts you at ease, enabling you to undergo dental care while feeling relaxed and comfortable. This makes for a more pleasant experience, even for patients with severe dental anxiety or those who need extensive treatment.
Maintain Better Oral Health
By addressing your fear of the dentist, sedation dentistry can improve your oral health and your appearance. Sedation can help you feel comfortable undergoing routine and restorative dental care, allowing you to achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.
Because our Idaho Falls dental office uses a mild form of sedation, the aftereffects are very minimal. Nitrous oxide has a quick onset and quickly dissipates from the body, meaning you can usually drive yourself home after your procedure without worrying about feeling woozy or disoriented.
You Are Not Alone You Can Overcome Dental Anxiety
Sedation Is Not Right for Everyone
Be thorough when you discuss your medical history and any medication you are currently taking to ensure your safety. Dr. Tall might not approve you for sedation if you are:
- Allergic to certain medications
- Diagnosed with a heart condition
- In poor overall health

How We Minimize Risks
We Use a Mild Form of Sedation

Side Effects Are Not Serious
The majority of patients will not experience any side effects. On a rare occasion, a patient may experience nausea as a result of sedation dentistry.
