Sedation Dentistry in Scottsdale, AZ
Does the thought of going to the dentist cause you to panic or feel fearful? Did you know that over 50 million Americans have some level of anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist? Fear is a massive contributor to patients neglecting their dental treatments and not receiving the routine dental care they deserve.
The great news is that our Scottsdale dentist, Dr. Rajan Sheth, is licensed to provide sedation dentistry through nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV (intravenous) sedation. Our priority at Scottsdale Dental Solutions is to provide you with a safe and comfortable visit. Offering comprehensive methods of sedation dentistry gives us the ability to let our patients sleep through their procedure, allowing for a pain-free experience and a more relaxed state.
Dr. Sheth obtained his training for IV sedation at the Ohio State University General Dental Residency, and he has been practicing sedation dentistry since 2010. He maintains his basic life support (BLS) and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) credentials to ensure his patients receive the safest environment possible when having any type of sedation procedure performed.

In addition to IV sedation, Dr. Sheth can deliver oral sedation in Scottsdale, which is the use of a sedative pill, and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to provide you with options for the level of dental sedation that will best suit your unique needs.
- Nitrous oxide – is a breathable gas that is safe for both adults and children and can be used during most types of dental procedures. Nitrous leaves your system quickly and doesn’t create any lingering effects.
- Oral sedation – is delivered through a sedative pill and suitable for patients looking for a deeper level of relaxation.
- IV sedation – allows you to feel completely at ease and sleep during your dental procedure. IV sedation is ideal for patients with severe fear or anxiety, special needs, or patients who have multiple complex treatments they would like to complete during one visit.
It’s important to note that patients choosing oral or IV sedation will need to arrange transportation to and from our Scottsdale dental office and allow an appropriate amount of time to recover.
How Does Sleep Dentistry Work?
Sleep dentistry works by having a small IV placed, which carefully delivers medication and can be adjusted so that the patient stays asleep throughout the procedure. When Dr. Sheth completes treatment, the medication is turned off, and you slowly and restfully wake up. The medications Dr. Sheth uses to make you feel sleepy can easily be reversed to provide a seamless and safe experience.
