We know that going to the dentist can cause some people to be a little anxious, that is why we offer two different types of sedation to help make you and your families visit more pleasant. We offer:
Nitrous Oxide – We administer nitrous oxide through a small nose-hood that you wear before and during treatment. Nitrous oxide promotes numbness and an overall sense of well-being. Effects of nitrous subside shortly after the nose-hood is removed, so you will be capable of driving yourself home if this is the only sedation you receive.
Oral Sedation – With oral sedation, you take a medication an hour before treatment administered by the dentist. The medication induces deep relaxation, though you will still be able to respond to the dentist’s questions and directions. Patients who receive oral sedation typically remember very little of the actual procedure and report being very relaxed during the procedure. With oral sedation, will need a consultation before and to have a friend or family member drive you to and from your appointment.
