Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry in Wasilla

People who experience severe anxiety when they think about dental treatments can often benefit from sedation. At Lane Family Dental in Wasilla, AK, we provide you with a calm, relaxing environment to ease your anxieties. In addition to our gentle, compassionate chairside manner, we provide sedation for our more anxious patients. We offer a variety of sedation methods so that your visit will be as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

For your safety, we require a review of your health history and a list of all medications and supplements you may be taking. We ask about such habits as smoking or alcohol consumption. These things play a role in the type of sedation medication we can offer. If you are a good candidate for sedation, we will explain the steps required before your visit to prepare for your procedure. Our sedation patients go through a thorough screening for their health and safety. Contact Lane Family Dental today to schedule a consultation about sedation dentistry.

Patients at Lane Family Dental can take advantage of sedation dentistry to calm their nerves and relax during their procedure. Dr. Lane can administer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral conscious sedation, depending on your unique needs. With today’s modern advances, there is no need to suffer with anxiety during a dental appointment. Simply relax in the chair, and perhaps even catch a nap while we complete your treatment.

With oral conscious sedation, you receive a pill before your dental procedure is to be performed. Once the medication takes effect, we begin the procedure. Oral conscious sedation will comfortably relax you, however, you will remain conscious. Occasionally, some patients become so relaxed with this sedation method that they doze while we perform their dental procedure.

With oral conscious sedation it will be necessary to have someone available to drive you home after your procedure. You may still be too drowsy to drive or operate machinery after your dental work is completed.

One of the most popular methods of sedation is nitrous oxide. This method, also known as laughing gas, has been around for over a century. This method of sedation has no lasting effects. Oxygen and nitrous oxide are administered at the beginning of the procedure. This puts you into a relaxed state of mind. When your dental work is finished, your system will be flooded with oxygen to clear out the nitrous oxide and you will recover quickly.

Do not let fear of the dentist keep you from getting the oral care you need to have a healthy mouth. Call Lane Family Dental and find out more about our sedation dentistry options.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff 🤗

The best dentist I’ve had in my 60 years. Absolutely impeccably clean facilities. New facilities. The latest techniques and strategies to provide excellent dental care. And most of all the least amount of pain I’ve ever felt at the dentist.

Fantastic customer service! Everybody there is very friendly and easy to talk to. They explained everything that was going on with my teeth, provided a plan to get them back in good shape, and cleaned em up real nice. It may have been a while since my last trip to a dentist, but I don't remember the visits being so relaxing.

Great atmosphere, staff, and dentist. I had a bad experience the last time I went to the dentist so I was petrified to go in but this place was totally relieving. Me and my family will always be coming here with our dental needs.

My husband and I recently found Lane Family Dental. We are both so pleased with their professionalism, modern equipment and outstanding care. The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.
