What Makes Our Sedation Dentistry Better?

Our entire team has trained extensively to use different types of sedation so we can perfectly tailor them to each patient. Whether you have a little bit of dental anxiety or a lot, whether you just need a cleaning or a full-mouth reconstruction, we can provide the ideal sedation for you. After speaking with you, we’ll know exactly how to take the stress out of your dental care so you never have to worry about your visits again.

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

With OCS, we simply give you medication to take at home on the day of your appointment, so that by the time you reach our dental office and sit in the chair, you’ll already be completely sedated. You’ll remain awake and be able to respond to basic commands, but time will seem to go by very fast, and you likely won’t have clear memories of your visit afterward. This approach is best for those with mild to moderate dental nerves or who require more extensive care.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas” as it’s better known, can quickly and gently calm patients who need just a little help to feel comfortable. A small mask is placed over the nose, and as the patient breathes in the gas, they’ll be overcome by feelings of happiness and serenity, and they’ll also become a little numb all over. The mask stays on for the entire appointment, and once it’s removed, the patient will be back to normal within a couple of minutes.
