No Need to Fear Your Big Procedure

Have you had a bad dental experience in the past or when you were a child? Do the sights, sounds, smells or tools of the dentist office cause you anxiety?

You are not alone. Around 30 to 40 million people avoid seeing the dentist every year out of fear or anxiety. If you are avoiding your dental implant treatment out of fear of needles, bad past experiences, or embarrassment, Durham Dental Implant Solutions offers calming sedation dentistry to make your dental implant treatments easier. Sedation dentistry not only calms your nerves but we can utilize it to block sensations of pain or discomfort. Sedation dentistry has been proven to help many patients receive the dental care they need and get them on the path to a healthier and happier quality of life.

While sedation dentistry makes dental implant treatment more calming and painless, the care you receive from our team and friendly staff will also make a difference. Our doctors have over 30 years of combined dental implant experience and can handle complicated cases using a team approach. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in your care and we will always provide honest feedback on what procedures you actually need for your implant case. Sedation dentistry often makes a big difference in helping you achieve your smile goals and feel happy and confident with your life.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is applied over the nose during dental implant surgery. The gas is fast-acting and will make you feel calmer during your treatment. Once surgery is over, we can remove the mask and you will quickly return to normal.

Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation

Taken as a pill before surgery, oral sedation puts you in a sleepy, dream-like state. You will likely not remember much of your procedure and many patients do not experience dental anxiety. After your treatment, you will need a family member or friend to bring you home.

An advanced form of dental sedation, we bring in a certified anesthesiologist to administer IV sedation and monitor your health during surgery. IV sedation will help you forget your dental treatments, fears, or any sensations of discomfort.
