Comfortable and Relaxing Dentistry with Sedation
Sedation can help patients have a more relaxing dental visit. For some of oral surgery services we can provide sedation that helps you 'go to sleep' through the procedure.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is most often used for patients who are mildly or moderately anxious or nervous. It eases their fears so that they can relax and receive treatment comfortably and safely.
Patients who are more anxious may need an oral medication that is stronger than nitrous oxide. With oral sedation, the patient may be sleepy but can be aroused if necessary and can respond to simple commands.
IV conscious sedation is usually used to help patients relax during surgery or more advanced dental procedures that may take a longer time to complete. General anesthesia can also be performed by IV and will put the patient to sleep for more complex procedures.
