Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a safe form of sedation that is commonly used on individuals who exhibit mild dental anxiety. Capable of creating a more relaxing and calming environment for individuals, it requires only that you breathe in oxygen and nitrous oxide through a nasal mask. Within minutes, you will enter into a euphoric state and feel no pain. With fast-acting effects at the start of the appointment, you can also expect that the nitrous oxide will subside just as quickly, allowing you to return home without the help of a friend or family member.

Oral Conscious Sedation

If you suffer from moderate levels of dental anxiety, oral conscious sedation can be an ideal option, as it is delivered in pill form. Taken approximately one hour before your appointment, the medicine works quickly to relax you and decrease any anxiety you might otherwise experience. As a prescription medicine, you’ll need to make sure it is okay for you to take. If so, you can expect members of our dental staff to closely monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels to ensure optimal safety.

IV Sedation

IV (intravenous) sedation is most commonly used on those with extreme dental anxiety or who are preparing for lengthy dental procedures. Administered into your bloodstream via an IV, our team can control the dosage that you receive, ensuring that you remain comfortable throughout treatment. While you will not be fully sedated, you will likely feel a bit drowsy after the procedure is complete, which is why you will need someone to escort you home after your appointment.
