Sedation Methods We Offer
Our team will work closely with you to assess what fears you may have and determine a treatment option that feels comfortable for you. At Normandy Dentistry, we provide sedation through nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation. Each of these methods are minimal and do not require invasive procedures.
Nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, is the most minimal form of sedation. It is easily administered through a mask that dispenses a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen, leaving you feeling relaxed. You may return to all normal activity after treatment.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral sedation is a minimal to moderate form of sedation, depending on dosage. You will be administered a pill to take orally about an hour before your treatment. This will leave you feeling drowsy and relaxed, but will not put you to sleep.
Who is eligible for sedation therapy?
Anyone who is seeking help with dental anxiety is a good candidate for sedation therapy. Additionally, sedation therapy can be used to treat those with extreme sensitivity or extensive treatment plans.
Is conscious sedation safe for children?
Laughing gas and oral sedation are safe to treat children, given the proper dosage for their weight and age. Often times, sedation therapy is an efficient way to keep a child calm in the dental chair. As always, speak with a member of our team if you have any reservations.
How much does sedation therapy cost?
Each treatment plan is different, and cost will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Visit our financial page for a comprehensive list of our financing options.
