Dental Depot offers a variety of sedation dentistry options to help you relax for your treatment.
Nitrous oxide, also known as ‘laughing gas,’ is a safe and effective option for people who prefer a mild sedative to help them relax during their dental treatment. Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. This option is a form of conscious sedation, but it is not intended to put you to sleep.
Nitrous oxide is available at all Dental Depot offices. Talk to your dental team about whether nitrous oxide is a good option for you.
IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that the patient will remain awake and able to communicate, but will feel no discomfort and may not even remember receiving treatment at all. This form of sedation provides an increased level of comfort compared to other, lighter sedation options, but with a much lower risk of complications than general anesthesia.
This type of sedation is administered intravenously, allowing your doctor to monitor and control the amount of sedative you receive.
