For some people, visiting the dentist or even the thought of a dental procedure being done can lead to anxiety. At Dakota Family Dentistry, we work with you and your family members to create a comfortable dental experience every time you step into our office. Conscious sedation or IV sedation allows you to enter a state of relaxation while staying awake during your dental procedure, keeping you free from pain while allowing you to respond to your dentist's questions and commands. Conscious sedation and the use of nitrous oxide are proven practices that have been around for over 30 years. Conscious sedation or IV sedation is a great way to ease your mind during a dental procedure and is offered for your comfort and anxiety control during many different procedures.
