Peace of Mind in Dental Care
We take your comfort and confidence seriously. When you arrive at our office, you will notice the inviting atmosphere. From the fresh flowers that fill the lobby to our fully stocked beverage bar, our amenities will make you feel like the treasured guest that you are.
Our treatment rooms offer blankets and pillows for your physical comfort, as well as ergonomic dental chairs. Before your procedures, ask Dr. Sohl about sedation options that will ensure your peace of mind and body during treatment. Based on your preference, Dr. Sohl may suggest nitrous oxide, oral sedation, a combination of both, or IV sedation.
Nitrous oxide is a sedative gas that provides analgesic benefits. It is common in dental procedures and has been safely administered for over 100 years. Nitrous oxide generally comes with no lingering side effects, which means that the patient can resume daily activities soon after the procedure.
Oral sedatives are calming medications taken by mouth to ease anxiety. Based on your medical history and treatment plan, we will determine your suitability in using oral sedatives. Unlike nitrous oxide, oral sedation requires that you do not drive after treatment.
We can administer a combination of nitrous oxide and oral sedation for stronger effects.
Dr. Sohl is credentialed by the Florida Board of Dentistry for IV conscious sedation. IV sedation uses similar medication to oral sedatives, but is administered through an IV. Some professionals describe this type of sedation as twilight, because it puts the patient in a very relaxed state – but does not invoke sleep.
