We are glad to offer sedation during dental treatment. When a treatment will be painful or cause extreme anxiety, patients can benefit from going under sedation. The 2 types of sedation we offer are nitrous oxide and IV sedation.
Nitrous oxide brings patients to a pain-free, relaxed state. Most patients can resume their normal activity quickly, because the effects of nitrous oxide dissipate soon after treatment.
If you need nitrous oxide sedation during dental treatment, you’ll inhale it through your nose. Our dental staff closely monitors dosage and vital signs, and is able to adjust the dose as needed.
Fear or anxiety over dental visits and dental surgery can prevent some patients from getting the care they need. Besides helping anxious patients relax, IV sedation helps us address several other concerns more effectively.
If you have any questions about your sedation dentistry options, please call our office.
