Nitrous Oxide (N2O)
This is still one of the most popular forms of sedation dentistry and involves inhaling a colorless and odorless gas for several minutes to induce relaxation. Many patients feel euphoric and extremely relaxed with this type of sedation. We can control the depth of sedation and bring you back to normal within minutes after the treatment is complete.
If you have trouble getting numb and want to feel more relaxed during your procedure, you may be a good candidate for oral sedation. Oral sedation involves taking anti-anxiety medication before the procedure so that you are completely comfortable and relaxed during treatment. You will need someone to drive you home since you will feel drowsy for a few hours after your visit.
If you have been delaying treatment because of dental fear or dental anxiety, talk to us about sedation services. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Elias today.
