We offer both oral and nitrous oxide sedatives to help you stay calm and relaxed throughout your dental appointment. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a safe, effective, and convenient form of dental sedation. It gives you a lightheaded, tingly feeling in your body, but it does not make you fall asleep. The effects of the nitrous oxide wear off soon after your treatment, and you will be able to safely drive yourself home from your appointment.
Oral sedation is in the form of a pill. This sedative should be taken an hour prior to your appointment and you should have someone assist you to Copperstone Dental. This sedative will make you feel a little bit drowsy, but you will be able to relax and stay calm throughout the operations.
All of our general and cosmetic dentistry treatments can safely be performed while you are under dental sedation. Sedation dentistry is a safe, effective, and convenient option for many patients. If you are interested in learning more about sedation dentistry and how it can help make your appointment with the dentist, Dr. Matthew Tuft, completely relaxing, please call or visit our office today!
