Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry in Derry

Going to the dentist can be such a stressful experience for some, that far too many people avoid going altogether. However, thanks to advancements in technology, you no longer have to choose between a healthy smile and your comfort. Our team at Haas Dental Associates offers a range of sedation procedures to offer patients throughout Derry the ultimate peace of mind during their next dental appointment.

Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety, and Dr. Jim Haas has extensive training in both conscious and complete sedation for children—being one of the few dentists in the area to hold a permit to sedate children.

Our sedation options include:

  • Nitrous oxide: This relaxant keeps you conscious and wears off quickly, making it a good option for those who are hesitant about their procedure while keeping downtime at a minimum.
  • Oral sedative medication: Our experienced team will deliver medication at the office prior to your appointment. This will relax you or your child throughout your appointment while keeping you conscious. However, this medication can make you drowsy, so we ask you to arrange for transportation to and from the appointment, and if your child is being sedated, we ask you to stay present throughout the entire procedure.
  • IV sedation: For those children who are very nervous, or have special needs, we offer intravenous sedation, which allows children to sleep through their appointment—helping your dentist perform the high-quality dentistry needed to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile.

A Comfortable & Stress-Free Dental Experience

Sedation isn’t only beneficial for those who are nervous about their appointment either. If you are coming in for a longer procedure, sedation dentistry might help you tolerate the prolonged treatment. Whether you have a nervous child, or you are uncomfortable about your next appointment, our team can help. We will walk you through the sedation process from start to finish, including a comprehensive guide for before and after your appointment—like whether or not you need to fast—so you know exactly what to expect from your service. Haas Dental Associates is proud of our expert sedation solutions and we can walk you through your options to deliver the ultimate peace of mind.
