Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have.

Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the Nitrous Oxide. You won't fall asleep; instead, the Nitrous Oxide simply puts you at ease and eliminates any anxiety you may normally experience.

IV Sedation

Many people put off visiting the dentist due to apprehension and fear, neglecting important dental work in the process. Unlike deep sedation or general anesthesia, IV Sedation will keep you alert and conscious during your procedure. With IV sedation you will remain awake and still be able to cooperate with instructions. Prior to your treatment, you'll receive medication through an intravenous line. This will place you in a calm, relaxed state while you retain all verbal and physical response capabilities throughout your treatment.
