Here at Gateway Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer different types of anesthesia to our patients to make their visits more comfortable.
The most common type of anesthesia used is a local anesthesia. This prevents pain in a specific part of a patient’s mouth. This works by blocking the nerves to that area. We often use a topical anesthesia before using local anesthesia. This helps to numb the area before we inject the local anesthesia. This is most often used for cavities.
There are some patients who require more anesthesia so we also offer sedatives. These are most effective if they are given before the procedure but they can be given during it. There are different types of sedatives. Some are inhaled as a gas though there are some in pill form. Some sedatives need to be given intravenously.
When you come to our office, our greatest desire is that you feel at ease and that you have a comfortable and caring experience. We are pleased to offer Nitrous Oxide, Oral Conscious and Intravenous Conscious Sedation.
Dr. Gailey’s IV sedation certification, experience and training allows him to tailor your dental experience to your needs and provide you with a greater level of comfort, relaxation and care.
We offer headphones, lip balms, neck pillows, blankets, sunglasses, mouth rests, frequent breaks.
Whether you need local anesthesia or general anesthesia, feel free to discuss your case with your dentist. We want you to have an enjoyable visit and will do everything that we can to help.
