for a Comfortable Experience

Nitrous oxide example model

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” is a colorless gas mixed with oxygen that helps alleviate mild to moderate dental anxiety, inducing relaxation within minutes. Under our team’s precise control, the sedation level can be adjusted during your procedure, and once treatment is complete, pure oxygen quickly removes any remaining nitrous oxide from your system. This fast-acting sedation dentistry option allows you to drive home without lingering side effects.

Oral sedation example model

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation, usually administered in liquid or pill form, is taken roughly an hour before your procedure, with an additional pill recommended the night before for more severe anxiety. While oral sedation dentistry may induce drowsiness and even sleep for some, you can still communicate with our team and be gently awakened if needed. It’s essential to arrange someone to drive you home post-procedure, as oral sedation can temporarily impact your memory and motor skills.

IV Sedation example model

IV Sedation

IV sedation, administered intravenously, provides a deep level of relaxation and is typically reserved for more complex or invasive dental procedures. Under the expert supervision of our team, the sedative medication is delivered directly into your bloodstream, ensuring precise control of your sedation levels throughout the procedure. While you remain conscious, you will likely have little to no memory of the treatment, making it an excellent option for those with severe dental anxiety or lengthy procedures.

Combat Dental Fear
for a Healthier Tomorrow

Neglecting oral health can lead to untreated, periodontal disease, tooth decay, and premature tooth loss, significantly impacting essential daily activities like eating, drinking, speaking, and socializing. Advanced gum disease can exacerbate symptoms in individuals with diabetes, respiratory disease, and heart disease. If dental fear or anxiety has prevented you from seeking necessary treatment, we strongly encourage you to discuss sedation dentistry options with us.
