We offer two different types of mild sedation dentistry. These include taking a prescription relaxation a pill and nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
In this way the patient and the dentist are comfortable providing and receiving the best possible dental care,safe and free of stress and pain.
For the prescription pill, the patient is given oral medication the night before and about one hour before your appointment. The medicine puts you in a light state of sedation to make you relaxed during your visit. You will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment. Once you arrive, you are allowed to rest comfortably in a warm, quiet room under a cozy blanket. During the entire time you are here, we will closely monitor you to ensure your safety.
For the nitrous oxide (laughing gas), nothing is needed prior to your appointment. Once seated in the dental chair, a nose piece will administer the proper amount of gas to relax you for your visit. Once the visit is completed, the nitrous oxide will be flushed from your system within a few minutes and you will be able to drive home yourself!
