Sedation Option We Offer

Dr. Vasani offers several different types of sedation to achieve various levels of relaxation. Whether you are undergoing a series of restorative procedures, an intensive periodontal treatment, or a cosmetic dentistry procedure, Dr. Vasani will determine the best method for keeping you comfortable during treatment. The methods she offers include:

Nitrous Oxide

For reduction of mild to moderate anxiety, Dr. Vasani commonly utilizes nitrous oxide gas. When administered, nitrous oxide is blended with oxygen and inhaled, producing a relaxing effect that can make necessary anesthetic injections and treatment much more tolerable. During the procedure, you will remain awake, yet you should be more comfortable, and you will be able to respond to commands and communication from Dr. Vasani. Once treatment is complete, the effects of nitrous oxide fade quickly and you should be able to drive yourself home if you choose.
