One of the greatest benefits anesthesia provides, aside from a pain-free experience, is a calming appointment that you may not even remember. Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”, is a mild form of sedation that takes effect immediately, giving you a calming sensation during treatment. Oral sedation, prescribed and taken before your appointment, helps ease anxiety before and during your procedure. IV sedation, the most customizable form of conscious sedation, is administered intravenously and is monitored throughout your appointment to maximize your comfort and pain control. Patients who elect to receive IV sedation often do not recall any part of their procedure! By choosing one or a combination of our many anesthesia options, you can experience a better overall appointment that results in a functional and beautiful smile once again.
Anesthesia gives our fearful and anxious patients the opportunity to restore their smile’s health and function. With the defeat of their oral health concerns—and their initial anxiety—they are free to live confidently with a healthy and attractive smile now and in the future! Fearing your dental appointments, especially those involving surgery, is normal, but our calming anesthesia options are designed to put you at ease and help you feel comfortable.
