Your Sedation Options

Making your dental appointment painless and comfortable.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is provided through a nose hood and is administered throughout the entire procedure. Nitrous oxide elevates the general mood and can evoke an overall sense of well-being. Most importantly, it relieves anxiety and reduces pain during the procedure. You are able to drive yourself to and from each appointment when nitrous oxide is used.

 

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral medication is provided prior to treatment, and then nitrous oxide is added to induce a more profound state of sedation. You are still “awake,” but your senses are dulled. This means that most patients cannot remember the pain, smells, or noises associated with the dental procedure. You will need a driver to and from the appointment when oral medication is used.

IV Sedation

Patients who have previously experienced IV sedation report feeling like they slept through the entire procedure. A treatment taking several hours will feel like minutes when you are sedated. This type of sedation is typically used for longer procedures or more complicated oral surgeries, but can also be used for simple fillings or even cleanings. You will need a driver to and from the appointment with IV sedation.

 
This is an AMAZING dental experience! I have always hated going to the dentist (leftover fears from having braces). These women are total pros! From the front-end office to the hygienists, the assistants and of course Dr. Dimova! A strange and wonderful plus? Tiny, petite women have little bitty hands! Makes for plenty of room in one's mouth. It really does actually make me look forward to going to the dentist! You GO girls!

We're new to the practice and have had all expectations exceeded. The team is super friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The family is all caught up on our dental care needs and are thrilled that DCV is on Premera BCBS' preferred provider list!

Rarely can one be excited about going to the dentist. With this in mind, we have been going here for considerable time. It was good, then with the update in staff, it became great.A special shout out to Wanda. The gentlest hygienist we have ever had poke and prod our mouths.I highly recommend this location.

Great dental care here - really good dentist and assistants. I have teeth that are tightly spaced at the top, and sometimes when I go in for a cleaning the technician will cut up my gums trying to get the floss past the tight part - this place is the 1st dentist I've been too where they know exactly how to do that correctly.
