Our Sedation Dentistry Services

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, is a popular sedation method for its effective management of anxiety and pain. It’s a safe, non-invasive option that allows you to remain awake and responsive during your treatment, with the effects wearing off quickly once your procedure is complete. This option is perfect for patients seeking a mild sedation method that allows for a swift recovery, making it possible to drive home after the procedure.

Oral Sedation

For patients who experience higher levels of dental anxiety or are undergoing more extensive procedures, oral sedation dentistry offers a deeper level of relaxation. Administered in pill form before your appointment, oral sedation allows you to enter a state of deep calmness while remaining awake. It’s an effective way to ensure your dental experience is as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible. Please note, if you opt for oral sedation, you will need to arrange transportation as it’s not safe to drive until the effects fully wear off.

  • What is laughing gas and what does it do?

    Nitrous Oxide, commonly referred to as Laughing Gas, is a mild sedative that can help reduce your anxiety. It will not put you to sleep. It’s colorless and odorless and its usefulness stems from its ability to quickly work and safely reverse its effects. It is a widely considered safe dental sedation method.

    We offer complimentary nitrous oxide for our patients to ensure they are comfortable and relaxed for any procedure.

  • What is oral sedation like?

    With oral sedation, we provide you with a safe prescription pill. You can take it at home, so you arrive already feeling relaxed and remain that way throughout your treatment. It usually takes 30-60 minutes for the sedative to take effect. You’ll remain conscious during treatment though largely unaware of your surroundings. You’ll need a ride home, as you’ll likely feel groggy for several hours.
