In order to provide our patients with the essential dental care they need without them having a negative experience, we offer a number of sedation options for our patients to choose from that can make the experience as comfortable and as easy as possible. 

Your Sedation Options

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is a medical-grade gas that can help patients feel calm and even euphoric throughout their dental treatment. The nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and then inhaled into the lungs prior to the treatment. The amount of nitrous oxide used can be adjusted based on each individual patient and wears off quickly so you can return to your normal activities once your treatment is done. 

Oral Conscious Sedation

Through a mixture of oral medications and nitrous oxide gas, oral conscious sedation is able to significantly reduce anxiety and help patients relax during their visit. A great option for those with dental anxiety and for altering time perception during longer treatments to make the process more tolerable. 

IV Sedation

If you suffer from severe dental anxiety, IV sedation can be administered by a licensed anesthetist. This level of sedation is also recommended for those with certain medical conditions that can make performing certain dental treatments more complicated.
