What is Dental Sedation?

Some patients feel anxious before or during long dental procedures. A variety of dental sedation techniques can help these individuals feel more comfortable in the dentist's chair. Our dentists can help you decide whether a dental sedation option is right for you. 

At Pure Dental, we do everything we can to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. Along with offering sedation options, we will work at your pace, take breaks when you need them, and offer calm reassurance as needed. 

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the nose and mouth. This medication calms patients while they remain awake and able to communicate. It also tends to reduce gag reflex, increase pain threshold, make time pass more quickly and lessen anxiety. 

Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives are pills or liquids your dentist can prescribe. This medication is taken orally before a dental appointment. It will leave you awake for the procedure but produce a calming effect to help you significantly relax.
