Fear of Dental Treatment? Our Sedation Options Will Keep You Relaxed and Stress-Free

Four Personalized Levels of Sedation

Nitrous Oxide
Extremely safe, nitrous oxide (commonly called laughing gas). Many adults in our practice 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.
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.
IV Conscious Sedation
IV sedation is a deeper level of sedation than nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation. IV sedation is administered in our office by a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) who is completely dedicated to monitoring your sedation throughout your appointment. Safety is our biggest priority. With IV sedation you will wake up with no memory of the procedure and will need a driver to and from your appointment.
General Anesthesia
General anesthesia is a deeper level of sedation than Nitrous Oxide, Oral Conscious Sedation, or IV sedation. Safety is our biggest priority so general anesthesia in our office is administered by a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). General anesthesia requires a protected airway and is an appropriate choice for children or individuals with special needs.
