Laughing Gas

Laughing gas is a sedative that is inhaled through a comfortable nose mask during treatment, and it is typically used to treat minor levels of dental anxiety. When you are under the effect of laughing gas, you will feel giddy and euphoric, and you will be responsive throughout your treatment. One of the biggest benefits of sedation with laughing gas is that the effects wear off very quickly, which means that you are able to drive yourself home after your appointment and enjoy the rest of your day as your normally would.

Oral Conscious

Oral conscious sedation is taken in pill or syrup form about an hour before your treatment is scheduled to begin. This medication will make you feel groggy and calm, and you might even fall asleep during your procedure. Oral conscious sedation is typically used to treat moderate levels of dental anxiety or for patients who will be undergoing an invasive procedure. If you choose oral conscious sedation, you will need to arrange a ride home from our office since its effects take a few hours to wear off.

IV / General Anesthesia

This sedation option is typically reserved for patients who will be undergoing surgery or extensive treatment. If you are visiting to remove an impacted wisdom tooth, IV sedation will most likely be used during your procedure. IV sedation and general anesthesia are closely monitored throughout your procedure to ensure that you receive the proper dosage at all times to keep you comfortable. You won't be fully asleep during your procedure, but the sedative will make you feel very groggy.
