We offer sedation to patients who experience dental anxiety, have health conditions which make it difficult for their muscles to relax, or have other care needs that can make dental procedures strenuous or uncomfortable.
Sedation is also offered to help patients relax during a variety of routine or non-invasive procedures for a more pleasant experience. If you think sedation is right for you, discuss your needs with our team.
Laughing Gas: Laughing gas is a gentle form of sedation that is safe for children and adults. The breathable, sweet-smelling gas is combined with oxygen and administered through a small mask placed over the nose during treatment. Laughing gas places the patient in a state of ease, relaxation, or giddiness. It can be easily monitored during treatment for a safe experience, regardless of the procedure.
Oral Sedation: This sedation method is administered orally in liquid or pill form. Oral sedatives are a mild to moderate form of sedation, depending on the dosage. Oral sedation helps patients relax during a wide variety of dental procedures. You will be fully awake but in a state of deep relaxation, allowing you to receive care without anxiety or stress.
