SEDATION DENTISTRY FOR COMFORT
For your comfort, we offer two different types of sedation dentistry, nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.
Sometimes, nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is administered during certain procedures. While you inhale nitrous oxide and oxygen through a nose mask, the doctor can proceed with placing your dental implants. You’ll feel light and easy during treatment, and the effects wear off moments after the mask is removed.
Oral conscious sedation provides a deeper level of sedation. You’ll take a small amount of anti-anxiety medication at a pre-determined time before your appointment. By the time you arrive at our office, you’ll be very relaxed and inclined to snooze through your treatment. Because you have a sedative in your system, you will need to arrange for a relative or friend to drive you to and from your appointment.
