What Our Patients Are Saying

As a child I was traumatized when the dentist I was seeing insisted that i wouldn't feel any pain, but I felt everything he was doing due to being immune to the effects of novacaine. After years of pain and dental phobia, I finally broke down and called to get the pain under control. Stephanie answered and got me antibiotics to help control the pain. I was hysterical when I walked into the office, but Stephanie was once again there to help me, assisting me gently, taking photos and keeping me totally relaxed including a warm blanket. When I was comfortably seated, they prepared me for IV sedation which would allow me to sleep through the treatments I needed done. My husband held my hand, and my mom was there for support. Carson and his team did the most amazing job! I have more to do next year and although I'm still scared, I know they'll get me through my treatments and with IV sedation, I can relax. Both Stephanie and Carson called that night to check on me with my husband and see if I needed anything. I'll never be able to express in words how grateful I am!

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Dr. Carson Kutsch is one of the very few general dentists that provide oral and IV sedation during treatments. Request a free consultation today to find out how sedation dentistry can allow you to complete most or all of your dentistry, including dental implants, while you are sedated.

Oral sedation is the most common technique used to calm patient fears using a prescription medication that induces a calm, drowsy feeling. The medication is administered orally, so no needles are required!

Intravenous or IV sedation is offered to the anxious or the fearful patient. Using medications to assist the patient to cope with fear and anxiety, IV sedation is both safe and effective when administered and monitored by our trained professionals.

Don’t Fear the Dentist

Reduced dental anxiety will allow you to visit the dentist even if it’s been many years, and your treatments only seem to take minutes.


Decreased need for anesthesia combined with fewer total appointments during treatment saves you money.

Fewer Appointments

With sedation, your treatments can be completed in a longer single appointment rather than several shorter appointments.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s important to understand that the entire purpose of Sedation Dentistry is to remove any fear of discomfort, pain, or anxiety from your treatment experience. Most patients tell us they felt absolutely no pain or discomfort during their procedures and may express that they feel great immediately afterwards.

Most patients don’t remember much of their procedure once the sedation wears off. Some may even experience a bit of retroactive amnesia and be unable to recall having arrived at the office. Less commonly, patients may experience mild nausea, headaches, or a feeling like jet lag once sedation wears off.

Our office monitors you immediately following your procedure to ensure there are no complications due to the sedation process. As a general rule, we’ll provide post-care instructions should you experience any issues once at home. Due to the relaxing effects of sedation, you will need to avoid driving or operating heavy machinery for 24 hours following your treatment.

Though it can be a bit of an inconvenience to get here and back, you’ll be unable to drive home after your appointment so we require patients that are doing dental sedation to get a ride to and from the appointment.

We’ll work with you and your insurance company to see if sedation will be covered by your insurance company. If coverage doesn’t extend to dental sedation, we offer easy monthly payments with financing. Most patients that have used sedation say it’s worth the investment.

We offer CareCredit® health care financing for your convenience which offers reasonable interest rates for those who need to finance their care.
