Conscious Sedation Dentistry
More Relaxed and Comfortable
Many of our patients at Signature Dental prefer to have a little bit of the “edge” taken off during procedures such as a fillings, crowns, or root canals. For these procedures, Signature Dental offers conscious sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses medication, either inhaled or applied, to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their visit.
What is Inhalation Sedation?
Sometimes people refer to inhalation sedation as “laughing gas”. When we use inhalation sedation, we place a small mask over your nose, and you breathe in nitrous oxide in combination with oxygen. This allows you to relax, and you should feel the effects within a few minutes. Some patients report their arms feeling tingly, floating, or heavy. We can adjust the oxygen/nitrous oxide ratio to help you feel comfortable. Shortly after we remove the mask, you will not feel the effects of inhalation sedation, and you will be totally back to normal.
