Our team at Generations Family Dental put your comfort first. Using nitrous oxide, also known as happy gas, laughing gas, and inhalation sedation, patients are temporarily calmed and sedated to prevent any feelings of anxiety or discomfort. Nitrous oxide eliminates any feelings of pain or angst from your dentistry experience. Even after your visit, our patients do not have to worry about any “hangover” effect as the gas is completely removed from the body only three to five minutes after we stop the gas supply. The clear odorless gas is administered comfortably through a hood over the patient’s nose by our experienced anesthesiologists who make sure the amount is catered to each individual patient’s needs.
Nitrous Oxide is an excellent solution if you have experienced one or more of the following:
Our team at Generations Family Dental put your comfort first. Intravenous Sedation also known as IV Sedation, twilight sedation, and twilight sleep allows you to be calm and comfortable during dental procedures. This common form of sedation allows dental procedures to be performed while you are under the influence of a sedative drug given via an injection, easing any anxiety or discomfort during the procedure. Patients may not always be fully asleep, but they are comfortable, calm, and relaxed, drifting in an out of sleep – a “twilight sleep”.
Generation Family Dental’s IV sedation is administered and monitored by our experienced staff, therefore eliminating the costly expense of having your treatment carried out in an operating room or same-day surgical facility.
Our team at Generations Family Dental puts your comfort first. Oral conscious sedation allows you to feel calm and comfortable by taking an oral sedative drug. The method is as easy as taking an aspirin. Patients simply take the sedative in the form of a pill in the hours leading up to the appointment and the drug puts the patient in a relaxed mood eliminating any feelings of anxiety or discomfort during the procedure. Note that you will need to have someone drive you to and from the office for your safety.
Oral conscious sedation does not “knock you out” like most anesthetics, allowing you to be awake during the procedure, but in a heightened state of relaxation. For those who have a fear of dental care and needles, this is a great option, as there are no needles or shots required and patients have little to no memory of the procedure after the sedation is complete.
