Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Also known as laughing gas, this form of sedation is known to curb mild to moderate dental anxiety, creating a relaxing effect that produces positive results. Patients wear a nasal mask and inhale the mixture only to become calmer and more at ease throughout their visit. Not only does it generate a stress-free appointment, but our team can readily complete treatment with ease while ensuring no ill side effects for patients once the mask is removed.

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Those who suffer from moderate to severe dental anxiety can find help in the form of oral conscious sedation. Taking a prescribed pill before their appointment, individuals will begin to feel more relaxed while in the dentist’s chair. They will eventually become drowsy and feel as if they’re falling asleep but will remain aware enough to respond to cues from our dental team. Because the effects do take time to wear off, however, a friend or family member must drive the individual to and from their appointment.

IV Dental Sedation

Considered the most invasive form of treatment, IV sedation is administered intravenously via the hand or the bend in the elbow. Within minutes, the solution enters the bloodstream and allows patients to feel completely at ease during their appointments. Our team will remain by a patient’s side to monitor sedation levels and make any adjustments necessary throughout treatment. Once the IV is removed, the patient must be escorted home by a family member or friend, as the effects can take 24 hours to fully dissipate.
