Our team at dentalhouse Woodbridge Dental offers dental sedation options including nitrous oxide and oral sedation to help you feel more comfortable during long procedures.
Our Sedation Services
We're able to use a variety of dental sedation techniques to help patients feel more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help you decide whether dental sedation suits your needs and is appropriate for your circumstances.
At dentalhouse Woodbridge Dental, we are committed to doing everything in our power to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their time with us. In addition to offering dental sedation options, we will work at your pace, take breaking breaks when you need them and offer calm reassurance.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
With nitrous oxide, you'll remain awake and able to communicate. This medication is inhaled through the nose and mouth. While it tends to lessen anxiety, it also increases pain threshold, reduces gag reflex and helps time pass more quickly.
Your dentist can prescribe oral sedatives in liquid or pill form. This medication is taken orally before a dental appointment. You will be awake for the procedure, but oral sedatives have a significant calming effect.
