Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous Oxide is a simple and mild gas to enhance comfort and to reduce anxiety. The effects wear off in minutes and no escort is required.
This option is as easy as taking a pill. It will greatly reduce your anxiety about going to the dentist. Best of all, you will not remember anything about your visit. You will need an escort while under the influence of this sedative.
Sedation dentistry can put you at ease and virtually eliminates the pain associated with dental procedures. Intravenous sedation is one of several options available to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort.
Benefits of IV Sedation
- It’s extremely effective for moderate to severe anxiety
- It’s quick-acting
- The level of sedation can be adjusted during the procedure so that you remain comfortable at all times
- In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit
During intravenous sedation (IV sedation), an anti-anxiety drug is administered into the bloodstream to achieve a state of “conscious sedation.” Although you will not actually be unconscious, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation – and probably won’t remember much about the procedure afterwards. Your appointment will be a dream and hours in the chair will feel like minutes.
Dr. Bacsa has undergone advanced training and has obtained certification in order to administer IV conscious sedation to his patients. You will need an escort while under the influence of this sedative.
