Sedation dentistry is a technique that allows even the most nervous and fearful of patients to get the dental care they need, safely and comfortably.
Sedation Dentistry can be a sensitive subject. We offer only the best treatment options for our patients.
In a typical sedation dentistry procedure, you will be prescribed a sedative to take prior to your appointment.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) can be used to reduce pain and anxiety, usually in combination with a local anesthetic.
In addition to this sedation, you will be administered painkillers to ensure that you feel no pain during your procedure.
The combination of sedatives and painkillers will virtually eliminate pain and anxiety during your procedure so that you can get the dental care you need.
After the Appointment
For all sedation dentistry procedures, we ask that you arrange transportation to and from your appointment as you may be groggy and tired after your procedure is complete.
