No two patients are alike in their dental anxiety, so we provide a comprehensive range of sedation options to ensure your total comfort at your appointment. We’ll discuss these solutions with you and learn about your anxieties to provide the best solution for your needs.
Minimal sedation option that helps you feel relaxed, though you’ll be fully awake and responsive during your appointment. Nitrous is breathed in through your nose and has no aftereffects. We can combine nitrous with Valium or other anti-anxiety medication to maximize your comfort.
Moderate sedation option that is a prescribed anti-anxiety pill that will put you in a pleasantly hazy state and help you feel relaxed. You’ll take this medication by mouth about an hour before your appointment. You most likely won’t remember much of your procedure and will need assistance returning home.
Deeper sedation option that lets you “sleep” comfortably through your treatment and wake with no memory of your procedure. We’re trained and certified to administer this level of sedation intravenously and will monitor your vitals to ensure you’re safe and comfortable. You’ll need to recover for a short period of time and will need assistance returning home.
