Types of Sedation
Many patients benefit from IV sedation: calming medications flow through an IV before starting any treatment. It’s administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. During IV sedation you’ll be responsive to us, but unaware of treatment.
Oral sedation works well for mild anxiety. Before your treatment, you will take a small pill. Our sedative medication is FDA approved with a long history of safety. You will stay awake and responsive during treatment in a comfortable, relaxed state.
This sedative reduces anxiety and helps you ease through treatment. You’ll breathe odorless gas mixed with oxygen through a nose mask. Nitrous Oxide can be adjusted up or down during treatment.
