Oral Conscious Sedation
What if we could get rid of your dental nerves with a simple pill? With oral conscious sedation, that’s exactly what we can do. Your dentist will prescribe you a pill to take about an hour before your appointment, so by the time you actually reach our office, you’ll already be completely relaxed. You’ll still remain awake and be able to respond to commands, but time will seem to fly by very quickly, and you’ll likely have little to no memory of your visit afterward.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
This form of sedation has been used for more than 100 years and is safe for patients of all ages. It is the gentlest kind we offer, so it’s best for those who only experience mild dental anxiety. A patient simply breathes in the gas through a small nasal mask, and within minutes, they will feel calmer, warmer, and maybe like they are floating! The mask stays on for the entire appointment, and after it’s removed, the gas’ effects wear off almost instantly, allowing a patient to go straight back to their day.
For patients who have extreme dental phobia, need quite a bit of dental work, or for those who want multiple procedures completed in fewer appointments to save time, IV sedation is an excellent option. For this, a potent sedative is administered directly into the bloodstream via a small injection in the hand, and a patient becomes extremely sedated very quickly. The biggest advantage of this technique is that it enables our team to adjust a patient’s sedation level in real time, meaning we can make sure they are comfortable at every moment.
