IV Sedation Dentistry

As a stronger form of sedation, IV sedation is recommended for patients who suffer from severe dental anxiety. IV sedation promotes a high level of relaxation and causes many patients to fall asleep. It also has an amnesiac effect, so you forget the details of your treatments, which can help avoid any anxiety at your next visit.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a gentler form of sedation that can be used by adults and children. The gas is administered through a mask placed on the nose and promotes a sense of relaxation. The effects of the gas pass quickly when the mask is removed.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is taken in pill form about an hour before your appointment. It is stronger than nitrous oxide and allows you to relax more deeply. However, the effects last for several hours, so you’ll need to have a driver accompany you to and from the clinic.
