Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry helps anxious patients stay calm and relaxed during their appointment. Many patients experience moderate to serious anxiety over a visit to the dentist. We provide sedative options that can help.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives produce a moderate level of sedation that can feel like a light sleep. You will be very relaxed and only partially aware of your treatment, if at all. Please note that the sedative will impair your ability to drive so you will need to arrange a ride home.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide produces a mild to moderate, euphoric level of sedation, which is where it got its nickname “laughing gas.” The sedative effect wears off very quickly and won’t impair your ability to drive.

If you’re anxious about your appointment, call our office and inquire about our sedative options.
