Relaxing Sedation Options
Sometimes a relaxing atmosphere and modern amenities aren’t enough to quell dental anxieties. We understand this, so we offer two industry standard sedation options that calm your fears safely and effectively.
Nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” is inhaled through a comfortable breathing apparatus before treatment. It will take effect immediately, giving you a strong sense of calmness and well being. You will remain conscious during treatment and will be able to answer any questions, and once removed you will feel back to normal in minutes, allowing you to go on with your day.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a stronger means of sedation that is ideal for those with more extreme dental anxieties. Dr. Kahlon will prescribe a pill for you to take an hour before your appointment. This pill will make you feel extremely relaxed and calm, while remaining conscious for questions. It will take an hour or two for the effects to wear off so you will need to arrange transportation home.
