Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation is so effective that it has been used by dentists around the world for over 100 years, and it’s so gentle that it’s even safe for very young children. It’s ideal for patients of all ages who need just a little help relaxing during their dental appointments. The gas is inhaled through a small nasal mask, and within minutes, a patient will feel warm, calm, and maybe like they’re floating a little. The mask stays on for the entire visit, and after it’s removed, a patient will feel completely normal and be able to instantly return to their day.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is the most powerful type we offer, and it works by having the sedative be administered directly into the bloodstream, helping a patient become extremely relaxed very quickly. We typically recommend it in the following situations:

  • If a patient has severe dental phobia
  • If a patient is in need of extensive dental care
  • If a child has special needs
  • If a patient has chronic jaw/neck/back problems that make sitting for an entire appointment painful
  • If a patient would like to have multiple procedures completed in one visit to save time
