Sedation in our offices can be divided into 3 categories:
Local - this is an injection given in the site. We have a tool that is sometimes used called, the DENTALVIBE. This will vibrate at the area of the injection and lessen the discomfort.
Nitrous Oxide - Nitrous will make you feel relaxed and dazed. It will not put you to sleep. Usually, people start to laugh a lot and that is why it is called Laughing Gas.
Halcion - Halcion is a sleeping pill. It is frequently given by medical doctors to help you sleep at night or on long plane rides. When we use this drug we require that you have someone drive you to and from the appointment. Your blood pressure and pulse will be monitored throughout the appointment. It is a very safe way to sleep thru your appointment.
