Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Patient receiving nitrous oxide sedation dentistry visit

Nitrous oxide sedation is administered as soon as you get comfortable in the treatment chair, before your procedure. We’ll place a small mask over your nose that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. Within a couple of minutes, you’ll feel a calming wave of euphoria wash over you. Once we complete the treatment, we’ll remove the mask, and just as fast as the effects took place, they’ll dissipate. After treatment, patients are able to carry on with the rest of their day as they normally would.

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Before your appointment, we’ll provide you with a single pill to take if you opt for oral conscious sedation. By the time you arrive to our dental office, you’ll feel more relaxed, and we’ll be able to quickly and efficiently treat any lingering oral health issues. The effects of oral conscious sedation can linger for hours after your appointment, so you’ll need to be prepared to have a trusted friend or family member drop you off and pick you up from our dental office.

IV Dental Sedation

For patients who are undergoing in-depth procedures or who have severe dental anxiety, we also offer IV sedation. This is when we’ll administer the sedation medication directly into your bloodstream, causing you to immediately feel like you’re asleep and at-ease. Many patients who undergo IV sedation don’t remember a thing about their appointment, which can be a huge benefit for patients.
