Who is a Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a proven, safe technique for achieving a relaxed state and greater comfort at the dentist’s office. Almost everyone who will benefit is a candidate.
However, you may not be able to use this technique if you are allergic to the medications used, or if you have certain heart conditions or sleeping disorders. We will talk to you about your medical history to ensure that it is safe for you to use the procedure.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation can be prescribed to alleviate dental anxiety at any level, both leading up to and during your appointment. Our team is highly trained to minimize any discomfort you may feel and ensure a calm and professional experience.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a colorless and flavorless anesthetic and analgesic used for sedation dentistry. It induces a comfortable and relaxed feeling that helps to ease pain during dental procedures. Nitrous Oxide is a popular choice for its ease of use – simply breathing it in can provide relief.
