Here at Stanley Dentistry, we believe that everyone deserves to feel comfortable and safe when receiving the dental treatment they need. This is why we offer an array of sedation options that can help keep the anxiety some patients feel when going to the dentist at bay. Our office’s sedation dentistry services include oral sedation, IV sedation, general anesthesia, inhalation sedation, and local anesthetic.

You can easily request any of these sedation services when scheduling an appointment. No matter what the appointment is for (whether it’s a wellness visit or something more serious), we will make sure you feel comfortable.

Stress-Free Dentistry

Patients request sedation dentistry for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, they’ve waited years and years to have any dental work done and want to get all of it done in one trip. Sedation allows them to undergo multiple procedures without having to schedule numerous appointments. Although we always love seeing our patients, we understand that most people (especially those with dental anxiety) probably want to skip as many appointments as possible. With sedation, patients who need numerous fillings, root canals, or crowns can get them done all in one quick, easy appointment.

Millions of people have dental anxiety that stems from poor past experiences. Going to the dentist can be scary and painful if your dentist views you less as an individual and more as a particular case. At Stanley Dentistry, we strive to make sure no patient has a bad experience but we understand that many people come into our office with preconceived thoughts and feelings about the dentist. Sedation allows them to go to the dentist and get the treatment they need without all the worrying. It gives these patients an option where perhaps, in the past, they thought there wasn’t one.

Everyone deserves to have a healthy, beautiful, and confident smile with the ability to chew food without pain. We understand if you’ve been putting off dental work for years but now there is an easy solution. We serve patients in Cary, Raleigh, Apex, Morrisville and beyond. Don’t let fear keep you from getting the dental work you need!


Inhalation Sedation

A noninvasive solution for nervousness, pain management and gag reflex sensitivity, our inhalation sedation uses nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” to minimize pain and keep the patient comfortable.

Local Anesthetic

For certain procedures like fillings, our dentists will use a local anesthetic to numb feeling in one area of the mouth. Local anesthetic is best for pain management, and can be used in conjunction with mild sedation for nervous patients.

IV Sedation

This new method of sedation allows patients to enter a sleep-like state, keeping you completely relaxed during your appointment. This solution is perfect for older children and adults who experience anxiety at the dentist office.

Oral Sedation

Administered orally or intravenously, our oral sedation method allows for treatment while the patient is conscious but relaxed. Under oral sedation, the patient can still talk and breathe independently, but may have a foggy memory of the appointment.
