Types of Sedation Dentistry

We offer different levels of sedation to cater to your specific needs and preferences. These include:

  • Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas): Nitrous oxide is a safe and mild sedative administered through a mask placed over your nose. It induces a relaxed and euphoric state, making you feel more at ease throughout the procedure. The effects wear off quickly, allowing you to resume your daily activities without any residual sedation.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation: This form of sedation involves taking a prescribed medication before your appointment. The medication induces a deep sense of relaxation and drowsiness, enabling you to remain conscious and responsive but deeply relaxed. It’s important to have a designated driver accompany you to and from your appointment, as the effects may take some time to wear off.
  • Intravenous (IV) Sedation: Administered directly into your bloodstream, IV sedation ensures a profoundly relaxed and anxiety-free state. This method allows our highly trained sedation dentists to adjust the dosage as needed, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. Like oral conscious sedation, you’ll need someone to drive you home following your appointment.
