Feel at Peace During Your Next Dentist Visit

That can be a reality with sedation dentistry. In fact, dental sedation can transform all of your dental appointments for the rest of your life!
Inhaled Sedation – Inhaled sedation is another term for laughing gas or happy gas. It simply means that this medication is given in a gaseous form that should be inhaled through a mask as you sit in the patient chair. The effects are immediate and wear off quickly when you remove the mask.
Oral Conscious Sedation – Oral conscious sedation is taken by mouth in pill form. It is a gentle sedative that will make you feel very sleepy but will allow you to stay conscious enough to follow directives as we work. You will take this pill about an hour before you visit the office, so you’ll already feel at ease when you arrive. However, you will need a trusted friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment.
