Every patient experiences anxiety differently. You may also feel more anxious about some procedures than others. To ensure you can get the right level of relaxation, we offer two kinds of sedation. Neither of them involve needles. Our dentists will help you determine which one is best for your situation.
Your options are:
- Inhaled Sedation – Also known as laughing gas, this sedation can be administered to almost everyone, even young children. You receive it through a small mask worn over your nose. It takes effect quickly and wears off fast as well. You’ll be able to drive yourself home after your procedure.
- Oral Conscious Sedation – We’ll give you a safe prescription pill to take before your treatment. While you’ll remain awake and able to respond to us during your procedure, you’ll likely remember very little about it afterward. Since you’ll stay groggy for several hours, you’ll need to arrange a ride home.
