Sims Dentistry

What types of sedation does Sims Dentistry offer?

We offer multiple levels of sedation and work with you to determine the best option for your treatment and comfort level.  Our office has recently completed and passed an audit by Anesthesia Evaluation (OEA)(which governs the readiness and safety of patients) for Dr. Elmore to administer IV sedation to our patients. 

Levels of sedation:

  • Nitrous Oxide:Decreases anxiety, increases comfort, and clears your system quickly so that you can drive yourself home following your procedure.
  • Oral Sedation:Decreases anxiety and increases comfort. If you’re scheduled to have this type of sedation, it is required that you arrange for someone to escort you to your appointment, remain with you in our office for the duration of your surgery, and drive you home.
  • IV Moderate Sedation:You sleep through much of the procedure. If you’re scheduled to have this type of sedation, it is required that you arrange for someone to escort you to your appointment, remain with you in our office for the duration of your surgery, and drive you home. A period of 8 hours of fasting before the procedure is also required.
