  • Treatments taking large amounts of time
  • Feelings of nervousness about visiting the dentist
  • Dental anxiety that has caused you to avoid getting care when you needed it
  • Fear of needles, or dental apparatuses
  • Trouble coping with discomfort caused by treatments
  • Difficulty getting ‘numb’ for dental treatments

Sedation Dentistry Options

Our team is proud to be able to offer different sedation options that can help patients cope with these issues and even more. Our sedation dentistry options include:

  • Laughing gas – Laughing gas remains the most popular form of sedation dentistry option among patients around the globe. As you inhale the laughing gas (which is also called nitrous oxide by some) it provides a sense of relaxation and calm, helping you to receive dental care without stress.
  • Conscious sedation – Conscious sedation – also known as oral conscious sedation – uses a special sedative pill to help provide a sense of deep relaxation, while still remaining awake during treatment so that you can interact with the dentist as necessary. Typically the medication is taken prior to your treatment and will require you to have a ride home because it can take some time to wear off.
