Sedation is available for those with dental anxiety about visiting the dentist office. Many people avoid coming into the dentist due to fear or possibly a bad past experience. It is our goal to provide a comfortable environment, which will allow you to relax with sedation dentistry. Our office provides different levels of sedation dentistry, to accommodate our patients. Sedation is a safe and comfortable way to solve your anxiety while getting your teeth cared for.
We offer these types of sedation
Nitrous (laughing gas)
This type of sedation involves the patient breathing through a mask prior to and during their treatment. Using nitrous as the form of relaxation for your treatment, allows you to drive yourself to and from your appointment. Nitrous is not long lasting, meaning you will not feel the effects of the nitrous when you leave the office.
Non-IV conscious sedation (medications taken orally)
The patient will still be able to respond while ultimately feeling calm and comfortable. Conscious sedation involves the patient taking a pill prior to the start of the treatment. You will be in a relaxed state. This type of sedation does not “put the patient to sleep”, however many of our patients naturally fall asleep due to their level of relaxation. It is important for someone to bring you to your appointment, stay with you and drive you home with this type of sedation.
