Nitrous Oxide, IV Sedation & General Anesthesia

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is most often used for patients who are mildly or moderately anxious or nervous. It eases their fears so that they can relax and receive treatment comfortably and safely. Nitrous oxide is administered by placing a small mask over the patient’s nose. As the gas begins to work, the patient becomes calm, but is still awake and can communicate. When the gas is turned off, the effects of sedation wear off almost immediately.Refers to the administering of an anti-anxiety drug through the blood during your dental treatment. 

An IV sedation dentistry is sometimes referred to as twilight or sleep dentistry. However, rather than putting you to sleep, the sedative helps you to relax and feel at peace. General anesthesia is a combination of medications that put you in a sleep-like state before a surgery or dental procedures. Under general anesthesia, you don’t feel pain because you’re completely unconscious. General anesthesia procedurees are arranged with our affiliated hospitals .
