If you experience dental anxiety, our sedation options are an excellent way to overcome discomfort. Sedation dentistry includes sedative medication to help keep you comfortable and at ease during your dental treatments. Some of the most common sedation options offered at our dental office are:
- Nitrous oxide: More commonly known as laughing gas, this conscious sedation is administered through a nose mask as a vapor and is a mild sedation that wears off quickly after treatment.
- IV sedation: Applied directly to the bloodstream, IV sedation is a fast-acting sedation that helps relax you during treatment. Though it is a conscious sedation, many patients fall asleep during treatment, which is a normal reaction. You will need a driver to safely take you to and from your appointment.
Our dentists will discuss with you which sedation option is best for your needs so that you can have a positive dental experience. To learn more about the sedation dentistry options we offer, call or visit our dental office by contacting us today.
