Patients can relax knowing their sedation will be managed by medical specialists. We can book sessions with professional anesthesiologists to handle all aspects of your sedative care. The specialist even stays during and after the procedure to ensure your continued comfort. This allows our team to focus on restoring your smile while keeping you relaxed throughout treatment.
Nitrous Oxide and Oral Conscious Sedation
Nitrous oxide is the most well-known of our sedative options. Otherwise known as “laughing gas”, this method is a favorite for its ease of administration and effectiveness. Patients just need to breathe in the gas to experience its calming effects.
Oral conscious sedation allows patients to remain awake and aware of their surroundings, in a comfortable and relaxed state. Some people experience amnesiac effects after the medication has worn off. Patients work with their primary care doctor and their dentist to choose a sedative that works well for them.
