At Sahara dental, we fully aware of the difficulties that you have to face because of your dental phobia. Therefore to allay your fears and to make you comfortable, Sahara Dental Summerlin offers a range of cutting edge sedation procedures that can help you say goodbye to your fears of the dental office.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas administration is one of the quickest and safest methods to reduce the fears of a patient, and therefore it is routinely used for calming frightened and apprehensive patients. The sedative effects of Nitrous Oxide gas appear instantly and fade off as soon as its supply is discontinued, therefore patients can drive back home by themselves.
Oral Conscious Sedation
At Sahara Dental, oral conscious sedation is reserved for more anxious and irritable patients. During oral sedation, patients are put into a deeper sedative state, making them relaxed but at the same time being conscious enough to respond to the dentist’s commands. Patients are administered with oral sedative medications as soon as they arrive for their appointment. The sedative effect of these drugs is not only more potent than Nitrous oxide sedation, but also longer lasting. Therefore, oral sedation can also be used in cases where multiple procedures have to be performed in a single sitting, so that phobic patients do not have to visit the dental office multiple times. Patients do not retain the memory of a dental procedure when they are treated under oral sedation.
Intravenous (IV) Sedation
At Sahara Dental, we treat extremely frightened and apprehensive patients by putting them under deep sedation with the help of intravenous sedative agents. For this purpose, we are working with local anesthesiologists who are trained in providing Intravenous sedation to our dental patients.

You can sleep your way through the procedure, and when you wake up, we will be done! And the best part is, you won’t remember anything about what happened during your visit to the dental office.
