Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous oxide is often used as a conscious sedative during a dental visit at our office. The gas is administered with a mixture of oxygen and has a calming and analgesic effect that helps anxious patients relax during their dental treatrnent. Because it is a mild sedative, patients are still conscious and can talk to their pediatric dentist during their visit. After treatment, the nitrous is turned off and oxygen is administered to help flush any remaining gas. The effects wear off almost immediately. Nitrous oxide rarely has side effects. Our pediatric dentists will provide you with pre and post-sedation instructions.

We want you to be aware of some changes that we have made for the safety of our patients and staff.

 

  • We ask that you please bring a mask to wear while visiting the office, they are still required in a Healthcare setting.

  • In regard to COVID19 please reschedule if the parent/patient(s) in the last 2 weeks had symptoms, been exposed to, is awaiting test results, or has traveled outside the US.
