We will give you a breakdown on what sedation dentistry is – just keep reading. If you’ve ever asked, “How can I relax at the dentist?” Sedation dentistry might be the answer!
As for whether sedation dentistry can truly help you relax in the dental chair, the answer is yes.
We also provide minimal sedation – nitrous oxide – free of charge to our patients. You can opt for nitrous, also known as laughing gas, for any procedure from a dental cleaning to a dental implant. Sedation dentistry is sometimes called “sleep dentistry” even though patients are conscious unless they’ve chosen general anesthesia as their preferred level of sedation.
