Sedation Treatments

Nitrous Oxidie

If a visit to the dentist makes you feel nervous or frightened, nitrous oxide (N2O) sedation, also known as laughing gas, can help you feel more at ease during your visit. Nitrous oxide is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you will inhale through a nose mask that you wear during your treatment. As you breathe it in, it can create a calming and relaxing sensation that will help keep you comfortable for your entire appointment. Nitrous oxide is a safe, mild form of sedation that will wear off only minutes after you complete your treatment. You will be able to drive home safely and resume your normal activities.

Nitrous oxide is a great choice for patients who regularly experience dental anxiety or phobia. It is also a good option for patients who are nervous about undergoing a new, unfamiliar procedure. We encourage you to speak with our dentist today to learn more about nitrous oxide and whether it is the right sedation option for you. We can also address any concerns and questions you have at that time. We want to help you feel more comfortable and confident in the care you received here at our office. Please call or visit us today!

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral sedation is a mild sedation treatment offered at our office to help anxious patients feel more at ease during their dental treatment. This sedation method allows our patients to remain conscious during treatment, which helps them have a comfortable and relaxed experience. The benefits of oral sedation include:

  • Quick and easy use
  • Comfortable experience
  • Lower cost than that of other sedation options

Offered in pill form, oral sedation is taken before you arrive for your dental appointment. Our dentist will give you a list of instructions for how to take your pill, and it is important to follow these instructions exactly. Remember to have a family member or friend drive you to and from your appointment, as you may feel drowsy as the sedation takes hold. It is also not unexpected for you to remember very little of your appointment, which is why it is important that you prepare accordingly.

We invite you to contact our dental office to learn more about oral sedation and schedule an appointment with our dentist to find out if this sedation treatment is right for you. Our team is ready to answer any questions you have and happy to help as we provide you with exceptional dental care.
