Choose From Several Kinds of Sedation Dentistry

At our office, your choices for sedation range from “laughing gas” that can be used even with children to methods that leave you completely unaware of your surroundings. No matter which kind of sedation you choose, it will be administered by our experienced staff, and you’ll be closely monitored throughout your procedure.

Your choices include:

  • Inhaled Sedation – Also called laughing gas, you breathe this in through a small mask. The mild euphoria you’ll feel is enough to relax you for many procedures. Since this is our mildest form of sedation, even young children can receive it.
  • Pre-Op Sedative – If you are worried about having a root canal or similar procedure, we can give you a safe prescription pill right before your treatment.
  • Oral Sedation – We can give you a pill that you’ll take at home before your appointment for a stronger level of relaxation than a pre-op sedative. You’ll arrive already relaxed and stay that way throughout your procedure.

We’ll help you make an informed decision by discussing each method with you and answering all your questions. Our team will also make sure you know how the sedation process works so you can plan accordingly. With some methods, for example, you’ll need to arrange transportation as you’ll be groggy after your procedure.
