What if you could have all your dentistry that you have been putting off for years in the conventional dental office in one or two comfortable visits?
We offer both Inhalation Sedation and Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry, treating people with dental phobias and anxieties. This may include administering oral sedation, a pill, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or a combination of the two. All this depends on the needs of the patient.
In this way the patient and the dentist are comfortable providing and receiving the best possible dental care-safe, and free of stress and pain.
Inhalation Sedation (nitrous oxide)
If you only require Inhalation Sedation, or nitrous oxide, at the beginning of your appointment, you will be allowed to breath in a safe mixture of nitrous and oxygen before the procedure is started. This helps to lessen anxiety and works to dull the perception of pain. Towards the end of the appointment, you will breath oxygen for only about five minutes an then you are ready to go! Nitrous oxide is completely reversable and will be out of you r system before you leave the office. You will be able to drive yourself to and from the appointment.
We offer this service daily.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Should you choose to do Oral Conscious Sedation, you will be given a prescription for oral medication to be taken both the night before and about one hour before your appointment. In combination with nitrous oxide, or inhalation sedation, the medicine puts you in a light state of sedation and you relax thru your dental appointment. Recovery is much quicker than IV sedation or 'sleep dentistry.'You need someone to drive you to and from your appointment. Once you arrive, you are allowed to rest comfortably under a cozy blanket. During the entire time you are here, we will closely monitor you to ensure your safety and comfort. Complex dental treatments that often require six or more appointments can be done in as little as one!
We offer this service on Thursdays and Fridays only.
