At Gaslight Village Family Dentistry, we understand that not everyone loves to visit the dentist. To help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during your dental treatment, we offer sedation dentistry at our Grand Rapids, Michigan dental office. We provide oral sedation and inhaled sedation; you will not sleep, but you will feel very calm and at ease, and you may not remember portions of your dental treatment.  Oral sedation is administered orally and the effects typically wear off within a few hours of the procedure. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is the most common type of inhaled sedation, and its effects disappear within minutes of the completion of your dental treatment. Sedation dentistry is very safe and effective. If you are nervous or anxious about your dental treatment, we encourage you to contact our knowledgeable and friendly dental team today to learn more about sedation dentistry.
