Relax With Your Choice of Sedation Methods

We want to do all we can to help you remain comfortable while you’re in our care. Besides topical anesthetic and our cozy amenities like pillows and blankets, we offer two great methods of sedation:

  • Inhaled Sedation – This type of sedation uses laughing gas to calm your nerves. You’ll breathe in the gas through a comfortable mask, and it begins to take effect immediately. You will probably feel warm and tingly all over and experience a mild euphoria. At this point, you won’t have any concerns about your dental care. Afterward, the gas’s effects wear off quickly, and you’ll feel like yourself in no time. Driving shouldn’t be a problem because you won’t experience any lingering feelings of grogginess.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – If your dental anxiety is more intense, oral sedation may be what you need to relax. Your dentist will prescribe a small pill that you’ll take as directed before your appointment. By the time you sit down in our dental chair, you’ll feel completely relaxed all over. You’ll most likely remain awake, although some patients do doze off. The pill will take a few hours to wear off, so you’ll need to have someone drive you home after your appointment.
