Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide, also referred to as laughing gas, is a great sedation method for patients who have mild to moderate dental anxiety. When you arrive at the dental office, we’ll place a small nose mask on you that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas that helps you feel relaxed. Once your treatment is complete, we’ll remove the mask, and the effects will quickly wear off, allowing you to go on with your day as you normally would.

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

For patients with more moderate or severe dental anxiety, we also offer oral conscious sedation. We’ll prescribe a single pill for you to take about an hour before your appointment, so when you arrive, you’ll already feel more at ease. Since the effects kick in before your appointment and wear off a while after, you’ll need to have a trusted friend or family member drop you off and pick you up from our dental office.
