Laughing Gas

Grand Rapids Sedation Dentist

If you've been putting off your dental checkups or dental treatments out of fear of pain, anxiety or embarrassment about your oral health condition, fear no more.

Sedation dentistry is a safe option for dental patients. Dr. Suk Jun Yun is one of a handful of Grand Rapids dentists that are trained to effectively utilize it in his dental practice. You can walk into the office with unsightly metal fillings, chipped, broken, stained or gapped teeth and walk out with the smile you've always wanted.

Laughing Gas is the most frequently used sedation method for easing mild to moderate anxiety. Administered through a small mask that fits over your nose, it is an effective way to calm anxiety, raise your pain threshold, and even make time seem like it's passing quicker than usual. As the gas begins to work, you will become calm, although you will still be awake and able to talk with the dentist.

At the end of your dentist appointment, you'll resume breathing regular oxygen, and all the effects of laughing gas will disappear, so you can resume your normal activities immediately.

Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation Dentist Grand Rapids Dentists

Relaxing during your next dentist appointment could be as easy as taking a pill.

If you have dental anxiety, oral sedation can help you get the dental care you need to maintain a healthy smile. Oral sedation is not the same as sleep dentistry because you will still be awake for the procedure. While pill sedation puts you in a deeply relaxed state, you’ll still be able to cooperate with your dentist.
