Sedation Dentistry

Dr. Williamson provides the highest level of care and commitment to ensure that patients can enjoy an environment that is comfortable and inviting. However, we understand that some of our patients suffer from dental anxiety.

anxiety-free dental experience

Sedation dentistry offers an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free dental experience to those who are fearful of dental work. The doctor may also recommend sedation dentistry if the procedures require an extended period of time, even if dental anxiety is not present.

The safety of our patients is of the utmost importance to us. Throughout the procedure, the dentist and assistant will closely monitor the patient's level of sedation with a blood pressure monitor. We also require our patients to have a driver to and from any appointment when oral sedation is utilized.

Oral or IV Sedation

Oral or IV Sedation

To administer IV sedation, an intravenous line is used to insert a tube into a vein, typically on your hand or arm. The sedation drug will be administered through this tube so that it can go directly into your bloodstream. IV sedation will put you in a state of deep relaxation, and at the end of the treatment, you will likely have no recollection of what happened.

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as "laughing gas," nitrous oxide is a gas that is mixed with oxygen and administered through a mask. The anxiety-reducing effects of nitrous oxide will quickly set in and stop as soon as the mask is removed. With this type of sedation dentistry, you can drive yourself safely to and from your appointment.

NuCalm, Anxiety-Free Dentistry

NuCalm is a safe, proven system that quickly relaxes you without using narcotics or controlled substances. NuCalm naturally brings your body to the first stage of sleep, making you feel the same as you do before falling asleep. The amazing thing is, you feel this way for your entire appointment!

How NuCalm Works:

NuCalm uses four components that work together to bring the body to a deep state of calm. It is administered as soon as you sit in the chair and takes about 3-5 minutes for you to feel the relaxation effects.

  1. First you chew dietary supplements that are designed to relax you by counteracting adrenaline. The proprietary formula is only available in the NuCalm system and includes structured, nutrient-sourced building blocks that rapidly create a natural relaxation response.
  2. Microcurrent stimulation patches are placed behind each ear. Research shows this helps facilitate the relaxation response.
  3. Noise-dampening headphones are used to deliver proprietary neuro acoustic software, layered with soothing music, to bring your brain wave pace to the pre-sleep stage (8Hz -12Hz per second).
  4. Light-blocking eye masks are used to negate visual stimuli and help maintain the NuCalm relaxation state.
