Conscious Sedation Dentistry
We offer conscious sedation to induce a relaxed state, easing your worries and stress levels as we take care of your dental needs.
There are several types of sedation dentistry available based on your individual needs and preferences:
- Nitrous oxide, (laughing gas), which is a sedative gas that is mixed with oxygen. You simply inhale the gas during your treatment to help you feel more relaxed. Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that wears off within a few minutes after we stop the flow of gas.
- Oral sedation, which involves taking an oral medication before your treatment. By the time of your appointment, you will feel calm and at ease.
- IV Sedation, which involves administering the medication intravenously (through the veins). This type of sedation enables our dentist to provide the sedation more quickly, and we can also easily control the level of sedation to ensure that you stay comfortable. IV Sedation is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that it will not make you unconscious, but you may feel so relaxed that you fall asleep during your treatment. You may also not remember all of the details of your visit.
Our experienced dentists and dental team will ensure that your entire treatment is safe. Each member of our team is highly trained, and we will carefully monitor you during your visit. If you have chosen oral or IV Sedation, please be sure to have a friend or family member available to drive you to and from your appointment.
