IV Sedation

We may suggest IV sedation if you have a severe case of dental anxiety or if you need to have multiple treatments performed. With IV sedation, you will enter an advanced state of relaxation where you will be unbothered by what’s going on around you. Even though IV sedation doesn’t put you to sleep, you may find that you have little to no memory of what happened during your treatment. It’s best to make sure that a trusted adult accompanies you to an appointment where IV sedation is used; that way, they will be able to drive you home afterward.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

You may have heard nitrous oxide referred to as laughing gas; this comes from the fact that simply breathing it in can help you feel relaxed and euphoric, allowing you to stay comfortable while your smile is being treated by our team. Compared to other types of sedation, nitrous oxide is very mild, and there are few side effects to worry about. Additionally, since nitrous oxide only takes a few minutes to wear off, you can simply return to your regular routine once your appointment is complete.
