Why should I get Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. At TKO Dentistry, we offer two types of sedation: nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation. Nitrous oxide is a colorless and odorless gas that is inhaled through a mask, while oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescribed medication before your appointment. 

If you experience dental anxiety or fear, sedation dentistry can help you overcome these feelings and receive the care you need. It allows you to relax and feel at ease throughout your procedure, making it a more positive experience overall. With sedation dentistry, you can say goodbye to dental anxiety and hello to stress-free visits.

The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Reduced Anxiety

Sedation helps alleviate anxiety and fear associated with dental procedures. It allows you to feel calm and relaxed during treatments, making your visit more comfortable and stress-free. By reducing anxiety, you can receive the dental care you need without the overwhelming fear that often accompanies it.

Increased Comfort

With sedation, you will experience increased comfort during your procedure. Whether you choose nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation, the medication will help you relax and minimize any discomfort or pain you may feel. This ensures a more pleasant dental experience from start to finish.


Sedation dentistry can help save you time by allowing your dentist to perform multiple procedures in one visit. Since you are relaxed and at ease, your dentist can work efficiently and complete more extensive treatments in a shorter amount of time. This means fewer appointments and less time spent in the dental chair.

The Sedation Dentistry Treatment Process

Consultation and Evaluation

During your initial consultation, Dr. Maria Wytko will evaluate your dental health and discuss your concerns and goals. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and learn more about the sedation options available to you. Together, you and Dr. Wytko will determine the best sedation method for your specific needs.

Preparing for Sedation

If you choose oral conscious sedation, Dr. Wytko will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for your appointment. This may include fasting before the procedure and arranging transportation to and from the dental office. If you opt for nitrous oxide, no special preparations are necessary.

The Sedation Experience

On the day of your appointment, you will receive your chosen sedation method. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask placed over your nose, while oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescribed medication. Throughout the procedure, Dr. Wytko and her team will closely monitor your comfort and safety.
