Sedation Dentistry

Many people are nervous about visiting the dentist. For most of them, nitrous oxide, or "laughing gas", will help them relax during treatment. Some people have more than usual anxiety about dentistry. For them, we offer conscious sedation to help them relax.

Also called "twilight sleep", conscious sedation puts the patient in a more relaxed state than nitrous oxide. Unlike under general anesthesia, the patient is not completely asleep.

This service is available for children and adults.
