  2. Deeper sedation – IV sedation
  3. Moderate sedation – combination of nitrous oxide and oral sedative (a pill)
  4. Light sedation – An oral sedative
  5. Light sedation – Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)

Our team of specialists will discuss which level meets your needs.

Who will benefit from sedation?
Any form of sedation can be a benefit to relieve stress or anxiety associated with a dental visit.
Oral sedation dentistry can benefit a wide range of patients, including people with:

  • children with special needs
  • a desire to have dentistry done comfortably while fully relaxed
  • high dental anxiety or fear
  • severe gag reflex
  • time constraints
  • chronic or acute jaw soreness
  • physical limitations
  • difficulty getting numb
  • extensive treatment needs

During the entire time you are sedated you are in our dental treatment room being monitored by a hospital grade pulse oximeter unit. This unit is used to monitor and record your vital signs.
