- “Happy Gas” is a mild form of sedation. It is a safe and most commonly used inhalation technique to relieve anxiety during dental treatment. A mixture of nitrogen and oxygen is administered through a mask before treatment under dentist supervision. Nitrous oxide is impressively safe material and is excellent for kids and adult patients with mild to moderate levels of anxiety.
- Any of a range of sedation medications, taken orally, offers a common and easy way to relax your anxiety before a dental procedure. These medications can be prescribed by our expert clinicians in advance of any dental procedure.
- Conscious sedation is commonly used in dentistry to reduce anxiety, discomfort and pain during dental procedure. The medication is almost always given through an IV line on the arm and under supervision of anesthetist. The medication helps the patient relax and minimize discomfort while the patient is almost awake during the procedure and may remember some of the procedure afterwards. A family member of friend should accompany the patient to drive them back to home following recovery.
