Sedation Dentistry St. Louis

Stress Free Dental Care

If the thought of a dental visit makes your palms sweat, and leaves you feeling nervous all over, you are not alone.

For many, going to the dentist creates anxiety that can prevent you from getting the care you need to stay healthy.

At City Smiles, Dr. Chris Hill and our care team have completed advanced training to provide you with options that allow you relax through visits and get the dental treatment you need.

We offer three options for sedation dental care that allow you to relax through visits. Please call (314) 375-5353 (Downtown St. Louis) or (314) 678-7876 (Clayton) to learn more about how sedation can help you.

Oral Sedation

Medication is prescribed prior to treatment.  A highly trained member of our care team stays with you through your visit to make sure you are comfortable.  You will need a companion to drive you to and from your dental visit.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as "laughing gas," is readily available in our office and provides an excellent way to combat anxiety for most dental procedures. The mildest form of sedation that we use, nitrous oxide flows through a comfortably fitting mask that rests over your nose. Nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that is used in combination with pure oxygen to induce a feeling of relaxation and well-being during treatment.

At the end of treatment, the sedation caused by the nitrous oxide dissipates almost immediately, and you will be able to return home with absolutely no lasting effects.
