Dental anxiety can make the thought of visiting the dentist terrifying and prevent you from receiving the treatments you need.
Sedation dentistry allows you to relax so you can maintain the health of your smile in comfort and tranquility.
Curious to learn more about the sedation options we offer at all of our Elite Dental Care locations?
We Offer Two Types of Sedation
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is widely used to achieve a relaxed state during treatment. According to the American Dental Association, nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is inhaled through a mask placed over the nose. Unlike other sedatives, nitrous oxide does not induce sleep. Instead, it gives you a euphoric feeling that can help you relax. For this reason, it is often called "laughing gas." The effects of nitrous oxide wear off almost immediately after you take off your mask.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Our highly trained doctors can also administer oral conscious sedation for those who need to achieve a deeper state of relaxation. Oral conscious medication is typically administered in the form of a pill. This type of sedative can help you achieve a state of near-sleep, or "twilight sleep." Most who choose oral conscious sedation have little to no memory of their visit, making it a very popular choice among those who suffer from dental anxiety as well as those who need to undergo extensive dentistry treatment.

Sedation Dentistry Helps Anxious Patients Relax
Do You Suffer from Dental Anxiety?
With dental anxiety, even the mention of the dentist can be enough to start experiencing symptoms. When it actually comes time for treatment, the effects can worsen.
Like many patients, you may have symptoms before your visit, such as:
- An elevated heart rate
- Sweating palms
- Insomnia the night before
In severe cases, your anxiety may have caused you to neglect your routine dental visits and postpone appointments indefinitely. We want you to be frank with us - if you are feeling uneasy about your appointment, let us know, and we will do everything we can to help you feel relaxed.
