Three Personalized Levels of Sedation

Nitrous Oxide
Extremely safe, nitrous oxide (commonly called laughing gas) is the only sedation option we offer for children and medically compromised adults in our office. Many adults in our practice also choose nitrous oxide for simple dental cleanings to more complex treatments. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the nose via a mask that is worn throughout the appointment. Many patients describe their experience as euphoric. There are no side effects from nitrous oxide sedation and most patients can safely drive themselves to and from the office that same day.
1
Oral Sedation
Oral medications taken by mouth can help you relax during your appointment. These medications are generally taken in the office an hour before your appointment. Some of these medications simply help you feel more relaxed while others may make you sleepy and you may have little to no memory of the procedure afterward. This option requires that someone drives you to and from the appointment. In some cases, oral medications can be paired with nitrous oxide.
2
IV Conscious Sedation
IV sedation is our most customizable and relaxing form of sedation. Though you’ll be able to respond to verbal commands, you’ll reach a level of relaxation that may cause you to fall asleep! Many patients like that they wake with no memory of their appointment. We’re one of the few practices in the Twin Cities area with capabilities to offer IV sedation in our office, which receives inspections routinely. Our team is trained and certified, and we also bring in a nurse anesthetist to administer IV sedation to provide the safest possible environment. You’ll need someone to drive you home after your appointment as the effects of this sedation take time to wear off.
