  • Soft blankets
  • Neck pillows
  • Free Wi-Fi

  • Sedation dentistry

What Kind Of Dental Sedation Do You Offer?

You might have bad memories of the dentist that make you anxious before your appointment. If so, we can provide sedation dentistry options during your visit, including:

  • Nitrous oxide: You inhale this “laughing gas” through your nose, and it quickly induces a feeling of mild euphoria that removes anxiety or fear. The effects end almost as soon as you stop inhaling it.
  • Oral sedation: You take this pill(s) at home just prior to your appointment. By the time you arrive, you will be in a deeply relaxed state. You will need someone to drive you to and from our office.

What Is Conscious Sedation?

There are times when it’s advantageous for Dr. Laos or Dr. Yoshikane to talk to you during a given treatment. That’s why we use a special form of dental sedation called conscious sedation. You will stay awake (hence the “conscious”) but will remain relaxed and unconcerned during treatment. This type of sedation can also allow you to get multiple treatments done in just one visit.
