At NE Dental Associates, we believe that your dental appointments should be stress-free and comfortable. We also understand that for some people, a trip to the dentist causes a racing heart and sweaty palms.
We are here to help.
Because we never want you to avoid your dental treatment due to anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry options to help you relax.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that enters the system through a small nose mask. We blend nitrous with oxygen and administer it throughout the appointment to keep you feeling comfortable. It leaves the system quickly once we turn it off, and within a few minutes, you will feel clear-headed and ready to finish your day.
Oral Conscious Sedation
When patients prefer a stronger form of sedation, we offer oral sedation, which requires prescription medication to achieve longer lasting effects. While patients remain conscious, they enter a dream-like state, making it possible to relax entirely during their procedure. Even patients with a strong gag reflex or those who have difficulty sitting still will find their appointments breeze by.
