When faced with the prospect of undergoing a dental procedure, it’s perfectly normal to feel a bit anxious or apprehensive. Don’t worry: We offer a range of safe and effective methods to ease or eliminate any potential discomfort or distress on your part, including local anesthesia, oral sedation and nitrous oxide.
- Local Anesthesia – Injections of local anesthetics such as Novocain block the nerves to a specific area of your mouth during treatment. Typically a topical anesthetic is applied to your mouth to prevent or lessen the pain associated with the injection.
- Oral Sedation – Used with a local anesthetic, sedative drugs are administered orally before your appointment begins to put you in a relaxed state. We offer a number of oral sedation alternatives in either pill or capsule form.
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation – Commonly known as laughing gas, this treatment places you in a deeply relaxed state. This method will not knock you out or put you to sleep. You will remain conscious and responsive at all times – you just won’t feel any pain and likely won’t remember the procedure. You will experience a very relaxed state of consciousness.
