Nitrous Oxide Sedation
For generations, dentists have used nitrous oxide (also called “laughing gas”) to help patients alleviate mild to moderate dental anxiety. All you need to do is inhale this clear, odorless gas through a cannula or mask we place over your nose, and your worries will practically melt away. You’ll remain awake, yet very relaxed. Once your procedure is done and you stop breathing in the sedative, you should feel back to normal within minutes, enabling you to resume your day as planned.
If your dental fear is extreme and even debilitating, IV sedation can put you completely at-ease. With this method, we administer a powerful sedative directly into your bloodstream, so you’ll reach a state of deep relaxation quickly. Most patients stay conscious, but you might briefly drift off during your treatment. The effects of IV sedation can linger for several hours, so plan on having someone drive you home and keep you company after your appointment.
