Sedation options at All Smiles Family Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide sedation

Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas. This odorless, colorless gas helps patients relax during their dental appointments. It is 100% reversible and doesn’t put you to sleep. It is a great option for anxious patients, patients with heightened gag reflexes and also younger patients that may need longer dental appointments.

Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation is also known as conscious sedatives is a step up from nitrous oxide sedation. For some patients, Nitrous Oxide doesn’t provide patients with enough reduction in anxiety. In these cases, medications can be prescribed by Dr. Adhami prior to the dental appointments. This medication makes patients so relaxed that they may sleep throughout the procedure. Most patients will not remember the appointment the following day.
