When having a procedure at Sunset Point Dental, our dental staff will make you as comfortable as possible while you’re here.

Types of Sedation
The team at Sunset Point Dental understands that no patient is alike, and some may need help coping with treatments. Our dentist in Clearwater, FL offers the following two types of sedation:
- Inhalation Sedation
- Oral Sedation
This type of sedation uses Nitrous Oxide gas (laughing gas) to help relax the patient while they are in the dentist’s chair. Laughing gas allows you to be conscious but relaxed so you can answer questions from the dental staff.
This type of sedation dentistry in Clearwater, FL involves using an oral medication that makes you relaxed, free from anxiety, and comfortable during a dental procedure. Our dentist may prescribe a medication for you to take before arriving at Sunset Point Dental, or you may receive it as you check-in for the appointment. Please arrange transport to and from the office as oral sedation will impede you from driving safely.
