What types of sedation are available?
Oral Sedation is prescribed for patients before a dental procedure. It can help take the edge off of the stress and help you feel more relaxed before and during your visit. It is a great option for children who have a hard time holding still.
Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is fast acting. It is administered by breathing it in and takes 30 seconds to 4 minutes to start to work and wears of quickly. It is a very common method of conscious sedation.
Intra Venous Sedation (IV sedation) is given at the visit though an IV. It helps to control pain and discomfort and patients often feel like they have slept through the procedure.
Regardless of what sedation you choose, our team is careful to monitor you throughout the procedure to keep you comfortable and safe.
