People who may be good candidates for sedation dentistry include:
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide is often called laughing gas and is used in dentistry to help anxious patients feel more relaxed during dental procedures. The gas is administered with a comfortable nasal mask, and the effects can be felt within a few minutes, relaxing a patient without rendering him or her unconscious. When the procedure is over, we will switch to providing you with pure oxygen, which eliminates the effects of the nitrous oxide from the body within minutes.
Oral sedation is administered through oral pills taken in advance of your dental appointment. This method helps you relax before, during, and after your scheduled procedure. Oral sedation is an easy and safe method that requires a prescription from our dental professionals. After the procedure is complete, you won’t remember many details about your visit. Because oral sedation does not wear off as quickly as nitrous oxide, this option requires you to have a ride to and from the appointment.
