IV Sedation

Patients who struggle with moderate to severe dental anxiety or who are preparing to undergo multiple procedures to fix complex dental problems may benefit from IV sedation. More invasive than nitrous oxide or other forms of sedation (oral conscious), it requires that you have someone escort you home after your appointment, as it can take time for the anesthesia to fully wear off. Its fast-acting entrance into the bloodstream allows you to become fully relaxed so that you remain undeterred by your surroundings and the events of your treatment.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas because of its ability to create a calming and relaxed feeling among those receiving it. Causing even a few giggles to emerge upon inhaling the mixture, you can expect to feel a slight warming sensation and complete comfort in no time at all. Nitrous oxide is viewed as the mildest form of sedation and poses few if any ill side effects – an attractive option if you are looking to return to work or school immediately following your appointment.
