Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is one of the mildest forms of sedation and can be administered to patients of all ages. By placing a mask over your nose, the nitrous oxide will begin to take effect. Within minutes, you’ll feel relaxed and at ease. Nitrous oxide is the perfect solution for patients with anxiety and can be used during routine check-ups, fillings, or other dental treatments. Once the mask has been removed, the sedation will begin to wear away allowing you to resume your normal activities. 

Oral Sedation

Given in pill form before your visit begins, oral sedation helps patients relax in the dental chair throughout treatment. By the time you sit in the dental chair, you shouldn’t be bothered by surrounding sounds or smells and can feel comfortable as you get the dental help that you need. Oral sedation lasts for several hours and allows your dentist to accomplish a lot in just one visit.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is typically used in lengthy procedures and can help patients avoid discomfort and fears during their visit. Administered by one of our trained and qualified team members, the level of sedation can be increased or decreased as needed throughout your visit. You may remember little to nothing following your visit and will need some time to rest as the sedation wears away.
