Sedation Dentistry in
Sedation refers to medicine that designed to help reduce the pain and anxiety a patient may experience during a medical or dental treatment. Ensuring that a patient is kept calm and relaxed during treatment is a very important part of dental care.
Some patients are anxious about visiting the dentist. They may even put off important treatment due to anxiety putting their dental health at risk. At Wauchula Dental, we try to make your experience with us a comfortable and positive one. We offer a relaxing atmosphere where patients feel at ease. Additionally, we offer sedation dentistry to ensure you are comfortable during treatment.
The types of sedation we provide include laughing gas and oral sedation.
- Laughing Gas: Laughing gas refers to an inhaled substance that a patient receives immediately prior to and during treatment. The medicine is administered by having the patient wear a special mask and breathing in the gas. Laughing gas will go into effect very quickly, as the patient will experience a sensation of comfort and general well-being. The patient should no longer be experiencing any feelings of anxiety, and they will have no issue with allowing our experts to work. The effects of laughing gas disappear very quickly, and the patient should be able to continue with their day as normal once treatment has been completed.
- Oral Sedation: Oral sedation is provided in the form of a pill shortly before treatment. When the medicine takes effect, the patient will be thoroughly sedated, and they might become less aware of their surroundings. The patient should have little recollection of the procedure once it has been completed. It usually takes a few hours for oral sedation to wear off, and the patient will require assistance getting home after receiving this type of sedation. This makes oral sedation best-suited for more extensive dental treatments.

This was the best dental experience of my life. Dr. Troy Kemahli was very meticulous, knowledgeable, and knows how to give almost painless shots. He has the latest hi-tech equipment and the office staff were well trained and friendly. And their prices are very reasonable 😁. I highly recommend Dr. Troy Kemahli at Wauchula Dental!
They are really great!!! I had all of my kids with me and they were really helpful. And if i had any problems they did everything they could to help me. I strongly recommend them to anyone.
Everyone is so kind and wonderful. Very happy with the service I received there. They were able to get me in quickly and take care of my broken tooth the same day.
Dr. Kemahli has been making a difference in the community through his volunteer efforts.
