Here are the three different types of sedation that we offer:
Oral sedation – Oral Sedation is administered by using a pill to deliver a controlled dose of a sedative to the patient. The pill takes about an hour to fully kick in. This form of sedation is best for patient’s whose dental anxiety is at a mild or moderate level and needs minor reduction.
IV sedation – Intravenous (IV) sedation is beneficial for patients who suffer from moderate to severe dental anxiety. The medicine from Intravenous sedation works to carefully administer
a controlled amount of medicine. The patients while conscious is also able to remain relaxed.
Nitrous oxide (N20) gas – Nitrous Oxide which is also commonly called laughing gas is important in dental care. It is administered through a breathing tube, and it begins to work in five minutes. Patients whose dental anxiety ranges from mild to moderate benefit from this type of sedation.
