Sedation/Comfort

Many people experience anxiety before and during oral procedures. It's okay to feel nervous or even fearful when anticipating an appointment. We understand that our patients aren't all the same. We have many methods available to provide you with a relaxed, comfortable oral surgery experience.

The most common forms of sedation used in oral surgery are inhaled, oral, and intravenous sedation. While sedation methods makes the procedure more tolerable for you, it is important to understand that they are not painkillers, and you will still require the use of oral anesthetic.


Oral Sedation

Anxiety prevents up to 50% of the population from getting even basic oral care. Simple oral medications taken shortly before an appointment can help make your experience more pleasant.

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas, an inhaled sedative, brings one of the safest and easiest sedation techniques to nearly any procedure. Patients from young to old may benefit by simply breathing in and out.

IV Sedation

Sometimes anxiety prevents a patient from completing treatment which leads to further problems. If nearly falling asleep during treatment and waking up at the end would make finishing your treatment plan possible, then IV sedation might work for you.
