Sedation Dentistry

Dental Treatment Without Anxiety

It’s common to be anxious about a dental appointment or a procedure. Sedation dentistry is available in our El Dorado dental office to help you be more comfortable during your next dental appointment.

Why Sedation?

The reasons for sedation vary from person to person. Ask us about sedation if:

  • You have dental anxiety or have had a traumatic dental experience.
  • You have problems with local anesthesia or being numbed during treatment.
  • You desire to save time by having more than one dental procedure during a single appointment.

Choose Your Sedation

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

A popular sedation option. The safe sedative is delivered with a nasal hood. You will experience a calming sensation and reduced anxiety during your procedure.  Oxygen is administered in conjunction with Nitrous Oxide during the procedure and solely at the end of the procedure to allow you to recover fully before leaving the office.

Oral Sedation

Oral Conscious Sedation (OCS) is a form of mild to moderate sedation provided to patients 13 and younger.  Midazolam and Hydroxyzine are given as a liquid medication which helps to reduce anxiety during the procedure.  Nitrous oxide is given in conjunction with the OCS medication.
