Helpful Facts about Sedation Dentistry


  • The top reason why people choose sedation is because they fear needles
  • Even patients who have difficulty getting numb with traditional methods can be helped by inhalation sedation
  • Inhalation sedation dentistry can help people with movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease or cerebral palsy during dental visits
  • It’s easier than you think—the process uses a mask that feeds a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen into your lungs to help you feel calm
  • It works well for a majority of patients and leaves little or no memory of the procedure
  • Dentists have used nitrous oxide and oxygen for many years, so they know how to relieve your fear and concern about dental work
  • Inhalation sedation is safe! It works incredibly well to relieve all stress, fear, and dental anxiety
  • Some patients are so relaxed that they sleep through the procedure, helping them feel rejuvenated afterward
  • Patients who are relaxed and comfortable make it easier to complete complex treatments in a single appointment
  • Dentists are able to complete even extensive and higher quality work in less time on patients who are fully relaxed
