Yes! There are many types of sedation. Our free downloadable infographic explains each type in detail. It’s important to remember though, that you and Dr. Rioux will decide together which option is right for you.
Most patients qualify for at least one method of sedation dentistry. We’ve learned the best candidates are those with extreme fear issues or those needing extensive work, as sedation allows more work to be completed in far fewer appointments. Dr. Rioux will be happy to provide a consultation about the options and which may be right for you.
Virtually all complex dental work can be completed while the patient is sedated.
  • The fear of pain?
  • The fear of needles?
