Sedation Dentistry for a Stress-Free Experience

We are pleased to offer sedation dentistry in Scottsdale, AZ tailored to your unique needs.

  • Nitrous oxide provides short-term relaxation during your appointment, so you won’t experience any pain but is mild enough that you can drive yourself home safely afterward.
  • If you need something a little stronger than nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation provides deeper relaxation.
  • IV or intravenous doesn’t put you to sleep but provides deep relaxation that helps mute sensations and the activity around you.
  • If you would like to sleep during your procedure, we work with Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) to safely administer general anesthesia at our Scottsdale dental office.

Frequently Asked Questions

We perform a few types of teeth cleanings at Serenity Smiles in Scottsdale, AZ; dental prophylaxis (prophy), deep cleaning, and periodontal maintenance.

Prophylaxis Dental Cleaning

Our dentists and hygienists recommend prophy (preventive) cleanings every six months for patients who don’t have gum disease. With a prophy cleaning, your hygienist uses a specialized instrument to remove plaque and tartar from the fronts, backs, and sides of your teeth.

Deep Cleaning: Scaling and Root Planning

Also called deep cleaning, scaling and root planning, is recommended for patients who have gum disease. It involves cleaning plaque and tartar from tooth and root surfaces to remove bacteria and reduce gum inflammation. Root planning smoothest tooth roots to help gums reattach more easily to the teeth.

Periodontal Maintenance Cleanings

If you have gum disease treatment, your hygienist will recommend ongoing periodontal maintenance cleanings. Periodontal maintenance is performed more frequently than other cleanings to prevent the progression of gum disease. Patients with gum disease typically have four periodontal maintenance cleanings four times a year.
