Our Calming Sedation Options

Whether you’re just a little anxious or have high dental fear, we have the sedation dentistry solution you need for a comfortable dental appointment. We’ll help you choose which option is best for you, including one or both of the following types:

Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is light sedation inhaled through a small mask worn over your nose. While the medication is flowing, you’ll feel relaxed during your appointment, though you’ll be awake. Once we’re done with the procedure, we’ll let oxygen flow through your mask, helping to clear the sedation from your body. You’ll be able to drive yourself home after your appointment.

Oral Sedation
Oral sedation, a type of moderate sedation, is a prescription anti-anxiety medication taken by mouth a few hours before your appointment. You’ll be conscious, but very calm and relaxed. Some of our patients who choose oral sedation even nap through their appointments! You’ll need someone to drive you to and from your appointment, as it will take a little while for the effects to wear off. The good news is that you’ll experience little or no memory of your visit.
