We want each member of our practice to have an amazing experience. Unfortunately, dental fear keeps people from getting the help they want or need to make their mouth healthy, comfortable, and beautiful. Quality dentistry can truly change a person’s life, which is why we try to break all possible barriers for people seeking help. We have several options for sedation in our office to put your anxiety at ease.
People love this effective solution for both quick and longer appointments. The great thing about laughing gas is that five minutes after your finished using the gas you feel completely normal again and are able to drive from your appointment. Nitrous oxide works very quickly to relax your fears. With this option you may not fall asleep, but your anxiety will quickly fade while you relax through your appointment.
This is a slightly deeper level of sedation that often allows you to fall asleep. With this type of sedation people will typically take a sedative medication thirty minutes prior to their appointment to allow the relaxing effect to take place. Most people sleep through their appointments and will be feeling back to normal within a few hours.
IV sedation is a wonderful option for short and long procedures because the medications given allow us to control how long you stay asleep. The great thing about IV sedation is that you can come in, have work done, and wake up after it is over. Think about coming to the dentist knowing it will be a relaxing experience and never feeling a shot or any sort of discomfort.
