Calm Your Nerves & Get the Care You Need With Our Sedation

There are many types of patients who come to us for their dental care. That’s why we offer you more than one method of sedation; we believe in giving you choices when it comes to your treatment. We’ll discuss all these options with you so you can decide what’s best for your situation. Your choices include:

  • Laughing Gas – For our mildest level of sedation, you’ll breathe in gas through a comfortable mask. It will begin working instantly to give you an all-over feeling of relaxation. You’ll feel light and slightly euphoric while you lie back comfortably in the chair. It wears off without any lingering grogginess.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – For more intense dental phobia, we can prescribe an FDA-approved pill that you’ll take ahead of time. It will help you relax, and you may even feel a bit groggy. Its effects last several hours, so you will need to arrange a ride.
  • IV Sedation – This is our deepest level of sedation. You’ll relax in a sleeplike state. You won’t experience any of the sights, smells, or sounds associated with your dental visit. You may not remember anything about your dental care afterward. As with oral sedation, you’ll need a ride.

To give you a special touch of home, we also offer pillows, blankets, headphones, and private patient care rooms.
