Sedation Dentistry Services

Some people are not particularly fond of going to a dentist. But for some, the problem goes beyond just the dislike for dental treatments. There is actually something known as “Dental Anxiety” that deters many people from receiving necessary and important dental care. At the office of Smile Matters Inc., we do not want you to miss out on your dental care treatments, but we also do not want you to experience serious stress or anxiety. That is why we offer sedation dentistry services to make your dental treatments comfortable and relaxed. Sedation dentistry helps you stay calm during your oral care appointments by temporarily suppressing the central nervous system.

One of the most popular methods of dental sedation is with the use of laughing gas. The patient inhales this gas during the procedure, and it produces a feeling of comfort and lightheadedness which goes away as soon as the flow of laughing gas is turned off.

To produce a mild to moderate sedation effect, oral sedation can also be used. A pill is given to the patient about half an hour before their dental procedure. Patients under the effect of oral sedation sometimes report that they often don’t even remember the procedure.

To eliminate the sensation of pain during dental treatments, we also make use of local anesthesia. This is an injection that numbs the nerves at the treatment site so that you do not feel any pain during a procedure.

Dental treatments do not need to be feared anymore. To learn more about how dental sedation can help you, please contact our office for a consultation. You can reach us at (206) 201-0656. Our practice is located at 509 Olive Way, Suite 1033, Seattle, WA 98101.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Q is fantastic. She is such a calm person and explains things in a way you understand. She was very kind and informative. I had a root canal done and she explained the procedure well and exactly what was to be expected. Her office staff are very professional and friendly. I will absolutely keep coming here."

"Beautiful kind people with affordable prices. My lumineer broke and the dentist was able to fix it. Excellent work. Then I went back for a cleaning and it was fantastic and my teeth felt awesome. Thank you to the receptionist as well who was very kind"

Jane R.

"I love Smile Matters! The office has personality and warmth, much of which is brought by the love staff and Dr. Quaidoo. A refreshingly female lead office with highly skilled and easy going staff. You won't be talked into anything here and they want to find a way to get you the care you need. In a medical field where Groupon deals can send patients seeking a deal every time they need a cleaning I am proud to settle down here and call this place my dental home!"
