Do you suffer from dental phobia or dread the thought of sitting in a dentist’s chair for two hours or longer? Many of our patients are candidates for safe and relaxing sedation options. While local anesthesia numbs treatment sites, sedation works on the central nervous system to induce feelings of well-being and euphoria.
Our office offers two safe and effective forms of sedation: oral sedation and nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is a benign gas that is breathed through a small tube that is placed near the nose. Oral sedation uses prescription medications that are taken before your procedure begins.
