Why should you use our office for Sedation Dentistry?

  • Relaxing and Friendly Dental Office
  • Multiple Sedation Options
  • Years of experience with dental sedation

Nitrous Oxide

If you merely need to relax or are having a minor cleaning, nitrous oxide is most likely the best sedation option for you. Throughout your session, you will inhale this gas, often known as laughing gas, and Dr. Nugent will be able to make any required modifications to ensure your comfort. It takes effect quickly and fades off quickly, allowing you to resume your normal day after your appointment.

Oral Sedation

Dr. Nugent can prescribe pills that you take at the office approximately one hour before your procedure. These pills are very safe and create a deeper level of sedation than nitrous oxide. Furthermore, the oral pills cause amnesia so you feel like your dental appointment only took a minute. You will need a driver to take you home.

Dentistry with IV Sedation

In severe dental anxiety circumstances, IV sedation is a preferable alternative. Because the strong sedative is administered directly to the bloodstream, it takes effect quickly and if more medicine is needed it can be rapidly given. You will be unable to recollect details from your appointment, and you will require someone to drive you home and watch you for a few hours afterwards.
