Why Choose Healthy Smiles Dental Care for Sedation Dentistry?

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a longer lasting method that we typically recommend for patients with moderate dental anxiety. Before your visit, we’ll prescribe you a pill to take about an hour prior to arriving to our dental office. That way, you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed from the moment you step foot through our doors until you leave. Because the effects of this sedation last awhile, you’ll need to have a trusted friend or family member drop you off and pick you up from your appointment.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation is a fast-acting method that is great for patients who have mild dental fear or anxiety. Once you’re comfortable in the treatment chair, we’ll place a small nose mask on you that will allow you to breathe in a colorless and odorless gas (nitrous oxide). Within only a couple of minutes, you’ll feel a wave of relaxation wash over you. As soon as your appointment is finished, we’ll remove the mask and you’ll begin to feel back to yourself in three to five minutes, once the effects wear off.
