Our goal is to make your procedure as comfortable as possible. Every patient has a different level of anxiety. In our office we offer a variety of sedation options including nitrous oxide and anxiolysis.
Nitrous oxide is an inhalation sedation and is easily administered in the office, allowing patients to relax during their visits. Nitrous oxide is generally referred to as "laughing gas". It is safe and effective and the effects of the nitrous are completely cleared before leaving.
Anxiolysis consists of a combination of prescription medications to relax the mind and body. Under the effects of the medication, patients generally have little to no memory of having their treatment completed. Anxiolysis does require our patients to have a companion drive them to and from their appointments.
