If you get anxious at the dentist and it’s preventing you from receiving the care you need, consider sedation dentistry. Our patients experience a relaxed visit to the dentist with the help of a variety of dental sedation options. Whether you need a wisdom teeth extraction or periodontal surgery, sedation dentistry can help calm your nerves during the procedure.
Miami Dental Sedation Spa specializes in sedation dentistry for our anxious patients. We offer several sedation options, including IV sedation, oral sedation, and nitrous gas sedation (laughing gas), all administered by trained and licensed dentists. Read below to learn more.

Types of Dental Sedation Treatments We Provide
Dental IV sedation is for our patients who have a high level of anxiety and fear. This type of sedation can only be offered by dentists trained and licensed in the state of Florida for conscious sedation. Some patients with long dental appointments also opt for this type of sedation to make the appointments more pleasant.
The licensed dentist has more control with the IV route than with the oral sedation delivery. Medicines are delivered through an IV line placed in the arm. Dr. Sanchez and Dr. Vidal have sedated many patients that travel from central and south Florida. A comprehensive exam is necessary previous to the sedation appointment to determine dental needs and medical status of each patient.
Miami Dental Sedation Spa uses state of the art equipment and technology to diagnose and treat its patients.
Unlike IV sedation, oral dental sedation uses medication to help patients relax during their dental procedures. Pills are taken orally to relieve light to severe fear and anxiety in patients. Any dentist is able to prescribe these medications as long as they follow the strict guidelines set by the American Dental Association. As the medicine takes effect, the patient can be in a very relaxed state during the dental procedures.
Nitrous oxide gas sedation (laughing gas sedation) is also another sedation treatment we offer. We use nitrous oxide gas sedation with patients who have light to medium fear and anxiety of dental treatments. Safe and effective, nitrous oxide gas allows the patient to go home by themselves since the effects will end shortly after the removal of the nasal mask.
