Nitrous Oxide Sedation

With nitrous oxide sedation, a small mask is placed over the nose, and after a few breaths, a patient becomes calmer, happier, and slightly numb all over. This colorless, odorless gas has been used by dentists for over 100 years to calm pesky dental nerves, and it’s perfect for patients who need a little help getting through routine procedures. Better yet, once the appointment is over and the mask is removed, the effects of the nitrous oxide quickly disappear, allowing someone to resume their regular day.

Oral Conscious Sedation

If your dental anxiety has caused you to miss out on appointments in the past, then you may benefit from oral conscious sedation. You’ll be prescribed medication to take at home on the day of your visit, so that by the time you arrive at our office, you’ll already be deeply relaxed. You’ll stay awake the entire time, but the visit will seem to fly by in a matter of minutes, and you’ll probably have fuzzy or no memories of it afterward.
