Sedation Dentistry

The different types of sedation:

Your options for sedation dentistry range from light sedation where you are conscious during dental procedures, to deep conscious sedation, where you are fully asleep.

Laughing Gas

This minimal form of sedation involves the use of Nitrous Oxide, also called "laughing gas". The patient breathes in the laughing gas while completely conscious. This helps them stay calm and relaxed during the dental procedure.

Oral Sedation

This involves oral medications that are prescribed to relieve anxiety before your dental appointment. These medications have a sedative effect and also some degree of amnesic effect for many patients so they remember very little about their dental appointment.
