At Wisconsin Dental Wellness, we offer both laughing gas and oral conscious sedation to ensure that all of our patients are comfortable during treatment. Patients may be interested in sedation for a number of reasons, including dental anxiety and lengthy procedures. We offer sedation for every patient because we want to provide the treatment you need in a safe, comfortable environment.
“Laughing gas” helps patients with minor anxiety relax in the dentist’s chair. This sedative is inhaled through a mask that fits over your nose, and its effects are feelings of happiness and euphoria. Laughing gas wears off quickly, making it an ideal option for children or patients who would like to drive themselves home and go about the rest of their day as they normally would after their appointment.
Oral conscious sedation is taken in pill form, which you’ll take about an hour before your appointment. During your procedure, your level of consciousness will be significantly reduced, and you may even fall asleep. This is an ideal option for patients who have serious dental anxiety or will be undergoing a lengthy procedure. Effects of oral conscious sedation can persist for 4-6 hours or longer, so if you choose this option you’ll need to make sure you have transportation arrangements after your treatment.
We offer sedation treatment for patients of all ages and during all of our procedures. From oral exams to fillings, crowns, and dental implants, we go above and beyond to make sure you feel safe and comfortable, and that you get the treatment you need.
