We understand that not everyone is comfortable undergoing dental care. Some may have difficulty sitting still for a long time while others find simply being at the dentist brings a level of anxiety.
Regardless of the cause, we offer several safe options for sedation to help you comfortably undertake dental treatments that will keep your teeth looking and feeling their best. Following treatment, patients have little recollection of the time, noise or any discomfort involved.
A relaxing way to experience dentistry, particularly with treatments such as root canals, extractions or oral surgery, mild sedation typically involves an oral medication taken about an hour before treatment. Calm and awake or sleepy during treatment, patients generally recover from sedation within a few hours. “Laughing gas,” or nitrous oxide inhalation, is another effective mild to moderate sedation for both children and adults. Perfect for those needing to get back to business quickly, you’ll remain calm and relaxed during treatment, but will be able to resume normal activities right away.
