We help you stop worrying so you can smile again.
Smiley Dental Group’s Sedation Options
We offer two types of sedation: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. Our dentists are experienced in sedation dentistry, and we’ll safely administer your sedation as we monitor you throughout the procedure.
Typically referred to as “laughing gas”, this sedation method is inhaled through a comfortable nasal mask. Nitrous oxide eases anxiety and lessens discomfort. The effects wear off immediately following treatment, so you can return to your busy day after the appointment.
Oral Conscious Sedation:
We will prescribe an oral sedative to be taken about an hour prior to your appointment. Oral conscious sedation patients can answer questions, but are blissfully oblivious to the procedure. Most patients resume normal activities a few hours after the appointment.
Because the effects of oral sedation diminish gradually, we require that you arrange a ride home after treatment.
