Creating a Calming Environment
We offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and moderate IV sedation to provide pleasant dental visits. Each of these options creates a calming effect that makes receiving treatment less cumbersome.
Nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, is inhaled via a mask, giving you the ability to remain relaxed throughout your procedure. Most patients can return to daily activities after treatment, as the sedative effects completely reverse in minutes.
Oral conscious sedation methods help calm nerves and create a better opportunity for patients to relax. This option is taken in pill or liquid form and dulls the senses without putting patients completely to sleep.
Moderate IV sedation is effective for those with moderate to severe dental anxiety. We administer the medication intravenously so the effects are near-instantaneous. If patients need further sedation during their procedure, the IV allows us to increase the dosage safely.
A Good Candidate for Sedation
We provide nitrous oxide to patients of all ages and reserve oral conscious and IV sedation for those over the age of 15 for safety.
Offering sedation dentistry at Advanced Care Dental helps our patients in many ways. Whether they had a previous traumatic experience, are afraid of needles, or are adverse to the noises associated with certain dental procedures, our goal is to ensure patients are comfortable. Sedation also grants us the opportunity to meet a variety of complex dental needs in one visit.
