Sedation Dentistry

Home / Services / Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety is a common problem. We’re pleased to offer options to help make our patients’ visits as relaxing and stress-free as possible.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) is available upon request. This safe inhalant creates a deeply relaxed, slightly floaty feeling while also providing mild analgesic (pain-killing) effects. Once treatment is over, it only takes about 5 to 10 minutes for the effects to wear off completely.

Most people can safely have nitrous oxide – except those with breathing problems or who can’t tolerate having their nose covered with the rubber mask.

BrainTap

For those who prefer drug-free sedation, BrainTap is made to order. This Bluetooth headset uses unique frequencies of light and sound to help you enter a relaxing meditative state from which you awaken rejuvenated and energized. It can help reduce stress, worry, and irritability while supporting emotional stability and mental harmony.

General Anesthesia (IV Sedation)

A combination of nitrous oxide and local anesthetic usually provides enough sedation, but there are cases in which general anesthesia is appropriate – for instance, when a patient has a disability, a strong gag reflex, a low pain threshold, or is unable to comfortably keep their mouth open for extended periods of time.

For our patients who require IV sedation, we work with exceptionally well trained dental anesthesiologists who understand and appreciate our holistic philosophy of dentistry. We make special accommodations in our schedule so they can be in our office during the procedure to ensure both your comfort and safety.
