IV/Oral Sedation

Our job at Smileology is to help you achieve your healthiest, most attractive smile. Our intent is to never cause a patient discomfort or stress. Though we have created a relaxing, friendly environment and work meticulously to complete dental procedures in the gentlest manner, we understand that there are many people who simply find dentistry distressing.
If you have avoided seeing the dentist due to anxiety, see how sedation at Smileology can change your whole experience!
We are proud to be one of the only board-certified sedation dentistry offices in the Niceville area, where patients from Miramar Beach, Crestview, Santa Rosa Beach, Ft. Walton and other communities can come to have their dental needs met while they sit back and relax. Patients who visit us may choose the type of sedation best suited to their needs. When consulting for sedation services, we perform a thorough check up and review medical history that will guide our recommendations for sedative medication.

Oral conscious sedation

Many patients today initially choose oral conscious sedation before learning their alternatives. Oral conscious sedation does have benefits and may be the ideal choice in some situations.
  • Suitable for mild to moderate anxiety
  • Prescription sedative is taken before dental visits
  • Relaxation may cause light sleep, but patient remains able to communicate with our staff
  • May be used for a wide range of dental procedures, even cleanings

IV sedation

IV sedation is actually the safest and most effective method of calming anxiety in the dental office. We are proud to meet the stringent requirements for certification as an IV sedation dental office. To maintain our certification, we undergo a yearly evaluation and inspection by the state of Florida.
Contrary to what many people imagine, IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation. It is not the same as general anesthesia, which requires breathing assistance and monitoring.
  • Extremely effective for fearful patients
  • Relaxes the mind and body, creating a better dental experience
  • Patients can swallow and breathe normally
  • May cause you to feel as though you went to sleep and woke up at the end of treatment
Both oral and IV conscious sedation have the wonderful effect of temporary amnesia, which means you can "sleep" through dental treatment and remember none of it. Due to the effects of sedative medications, we require patients to arrange reliable transportation to and from our office and we encourage a day of rest at home. No work, no important paperwork, and no online shopping!
Sedation can completely change your dental experiences. Learn more about your options during your consultation visit at Smileology in Miramar Beach.
