What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, involves using medication to help anxious patients relax while getting the dental care they need. Regardless of the type of sedation you receive, we will use a local anesthetic to numb the area and relieve your pain and discomfort.

Who Is a Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is recommended for people with dental phobia, a real fear or anxiety that interferes with getting their needed dental care. It is also beneficial for patients with sensitive teeth, a bad gag reflex, a low pain threshold, or complex dental problems. Sedation dentistry is especially helpful for children who can't sit still for long periods or those requiring a large amount of dental work completed.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation (Laughing Gas)

This form of minimal conscious sedation involves breathing in a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a mask. You will feel relaxed and comfortable throughout treatment. You will remain fully awake and responsive. Once your procedure is complete and we remove the mask, the effects of the gas will wear off right away. You'll be able to drive yourself home safely after treatment.
