Nitrous oxide is a gas that we can administer continuously during your appointment. Perfect for taking the edge off and helping relieve you of any feelings of anxiety you may be experiencing, nitrous oxide is a traditional part of the dentists’ toolkit. You’ll wear a breathing mask and inhale a mix of nitrous and oxygen while we perform your procedure — and should notice that you feel calmer and more relaxed.
The next level up from nitrous is oral sedation. Typically administered in pill form, oral sedation helps put you into a relaxed, drowsy state during your appointment. You may feel sleepy, as well as an increased sense of calm and well-being — and your memories of the appointment will tend to be vague. This can be especially helpful for anyone who feels anxious or nervous about coming in for a visit.
Finally, we offer IV sedation. This is administered through an IV drip and puts you into a deeply relaxed, semi-aware state sometimes referred to as twilight. IV sedation is better suited for larger or more complicated procedures or in cases where a patient feels a high level of anxiety.
All of our sedation methods are safe and effective. Our team is trained to properly administer each method and will monitor you during your visit, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.
