Many people do not enjoy having dental care, particularly when it involves longer appointments or complex treatment. Our office has the ability to make these appointments more pleasant for you through the use of oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide sedation.
Oral conscious sedation is a very safe and effective method to allow those of us who get anxious at the dentist to have a more pleasant experience while receiving necessary care. It involves taking oral medication known to help calm and relax you. Some of these medications can also help you remember less of the visit due to their amnestic qualities.
Nitrous oxide sedation (or laughing gas) is an inhaled gas that has a calming effect and can be used by itself or in conjunction with oral conscious sedation.
If you are interested in exploring being sedated for your periodontal care, please let us know and we can review what options are available to you at our office.
