Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry

At Fairway Dental, we are experts on sedation dentistry, with conscious sedation dentistry designed to make you comfortable at our location in Foley, AL.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Fairway Dental has the credentials necessary to perform conscious sedation dentistry. We specialize in the use of sedation dentistry particularly for young children who might otherwise be afraid of the dentist or the discomfort associated with more intensive dental processes, but also for adults who are anxious about getting an important procedure done.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry gives Fairway Dental patients true peace of mind and comfort while enabling our dental team of experts to perform their work with great care and concentration. Our approach guarantees that you will have the most comfortable and smooth dentist visit, with an experience that is safe, effective, and FDA-approved. You will be on your way to a healthy, beautiful smile, with no stress!

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Sedation dentistry at Fairway Dental is extremely safe, and because we’re the only provider in the area with the credentials necessary to perform conscious sedation dentistry, you know you’re in good hands. We utilize three types of sedation dentistry: laughing gas, IV sedation, and oral sedation. We always carefully evaluate every patient’s medical history beforehand, which is why you can rest assured that sedation dentistry is a safe procedure.

How is Sedation Dentistry Performed?

With our friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere, and ultra-high quality treatment, it’s no wonder so many patients choose the comfy way with Fairway Dental. Laughing gas acts as an analgesic (painkiller) as well as instills a sense of relaxation and cooperation. It is used in many medicinal procedures on both adults and children.

IV Sedation Dentistry

Do you have any fear or anxiety about going to the dentist? Ideal for those patients who wish to combine a variety of intensive procedures into one visit, IV conscious sedation dentistry using an IV applied by an anesthesiologist is often the best choice in such cases. During these procedures, patients may go back and forth between a conscious and unconscious state, and hours can start to feel like minutes. This method does have some lasting side effects following your procedure and patients will need an escort to return home.

Dental Implants

Among our areas of world-class expertise is our high-level capacity with dental implants, including zygomatic implants, and part of the reason that we are so popular with patients seeking dental implants is because of our tremendous expertise in sedation dentistry and IV sedation dentistry.

Recovery from Sedation Dentistry

After your dental procedure is complete, we will turn off the laughing gas and let you breathe normally. This will flush any remaining gas out of your system, and you will become more alert and normal.

How Much Does Sedation Dentistry Cost?

Dental insurance may cover certain types of sedation dentistry. Check with your provider to see if it is covered by your plan.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as esthetics. Extensive loss of tooth structure can best be replaced with a restoration that covers your entire tooth as in a crown. This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long-lasting esthetic and functional result.

Dental Exams And Check-Ups

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your dental visit.


Dental fillings are the most conservative way to restore smaller areas of tooth decay. In a dental expert's hands, these types of restorations can be made to conserve as much of your natural tooth as possible while providing a restoration that is almost indistinguishable from the natural tooth. Both resin and porcelain fillings can be adhesively bonded to your natural tooth to add strength.

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.
