What is Sedation Dentistry? Sedation dentistry comes in many forms and the type of sedation that is administered to a patient really depends on the patient’s comfort level as well ad the type of dental procedure that needs to be done. To better understand sedation please review the different types that we offer for our patients this includes IV sedation and in addition to this type of sedation we offer:

Different Types of Sedation
  • Oral Sedation: This is sedation in pill form, taken about an hour before your appointment, which can reduce your anxiety and help ease pain. It can make you groggy and drowsy, thus requiring a ride to and from your appointment.

  • Nitrous Oxide: Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous is administered in the office by a general dentist just prior to your procedure, and it wears off within minutes so that you can drive yourself home.

  • Local Anesthetic: This is used to help relieve severe pain, such as during highly invasive procedures and emergency situations, and it can be injected directly into painful areas.
