Our Personalized Sedation Options

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide, otherwise known as “laughing gas,” is a very mild form of sedation that can help decrease your anxiety about having dental procedures completed. This type of sedation does not have many restrictions, so virtually any patient is a candidate for nitrous oxide sedation (even kids!). 

Nitrous oxide does not produce any long-lasting side effects after the dental procedure is over. There are also no eating restrictions before or after using nitrous oxide, and you can drive yourself to and from your dental appointment.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation dental anesthesia offers a gentle and effective solution for easing dental anxiety. Administered as a prescribed tablet, it induces a calming sensation that helps patients feel more relaxed during their dental procedures. 

This approach allows you to remain conscious and responsive while significantly reducing your anxiety, making it an ideal sedation dentistry option for those seeking a tranquil dental experience.
