Sedation Dentistry

Our Dentists offer mild sedation for nervous adult patients.

Triazolam (brand name Halcion) is a high potency benzodiazepine drug which is used for the short-term treatment of anxiety making it very effective for dental treatment. Patients who choose to have sedation for dental treatment will need someone to drive them to and from their appointment.

Nitrous oxide/oxygen (N2O-O2) is a blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide which are administered via a fitted mask is placed over your nose and as you breathe normally, it becomes effective. At the end of treatment, the nitrous oxide is discontinued and straight oxygen is administered. N2O-O2 sedation has no lingering effects and is perhaps the safest sedative in dentistry. You remain fully conscious and keep all natural reflexes when breathing nitrous oxide/oxygen
