Anxiety over a visit to the dentist affects many patients. Sedation dentistry can help you stay calm during your appointment. We provide options for several levels of sedation.
We can prescribe oral sedatives to provide a mild to moderate sedative effect. You take the medication prior to your visit.
Patients who need a high level of sedation can choose intravenous sedation. It provides an almost sleep-like state and you will have no memory of your treatment.
Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas” provides a mild, short-lasting level of sedation. It wears off quickly after your treatment is over.
All sedatives will make you legally impaired and unable to drive a vehicle. Please arrange transportation home from our office.
