Sedation Options Offered
Deep sedation administered by an anesthesiologist:
This is a good option for many surgical procedures. An experienced anesthesiologist will administer deep sedation and closely monitor your health while your treatment takes place.
IV Conscious Sedation:
Also known as “Twilight Sedation”, this form is administered directly into the vein, leaving you in a semi-conscious relaxed state. Patients will feel like they slept while they were being worked on and feel as if no time has passed.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, has an almost instantaneous effect and wears off very quickly. This lets your periodontist carefully control your level of sedation. Laughing gas gives you a happy feeling and numbs your pain. It is ideal for deep cleanings or small surgical procedures.
Perfect to help you conquer anxiety, this form of sedation relaxes you with just a pill. Patients with this kind of sedation tend to not notice the sounds and smells that have typically triggered their anxiety.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. It is estimated that millions of adults avoid the dentist because of dental anxiety. To ensure that our patients are able to receive the periodontal care they need, we offer a variety of sedation options. Patients who receive sedation dentistry are pleasantly surprised by how much they now enjoy their dental visits!
