Reduce Your Anxiety with Sedation Dentistry Techniques!

Fear of visiting the dentist is often associated with children when, in fact, people of all ages can experience anxiety or deep discomfort every time they need to come in for an appointment. Such fears often make you neglect their biannual checkups, leading to dental problems remaining undiagnosed until it is too late to avoid extensive treatment. This is where sedation dentistry comes in. If you are looking for a fully qualified sedation dentist in Lansdale, PA, you have come to the right place.


At North Penn Dental Arts, we offer a wide selection of sedation dentistry options, including nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation medications, as well as IV sedation. The goal of this technique is to strike a balance between having the patient be fully relaxed but not fully asleep. Our most popular form of sedation is nitrous oxide – also known as “laughing gas” – that is safe yet effective for adults and children alike.

The following are the varying degrees of dental sedation that we can offer you at our office:

Minimal sedation – You will be entirely awake and able to speak, and only your awareness of the procedure will be dulled.

Moderate sedation – You will remain conscious, although in some cases you may require light prompting from our team in order to respond. However, your breathing and cardiovascular function will not be affected.

Deep sedation – You will not be easily awoken, although you will respond to painful prompting. In certain cases, your cardiovascular function may be affected and you will require assistance to maintain normal breathing.
