Sedation Dentistry Meriden CTRelax Through Your Dental Care

Nitrous oxide sedation, also called “laughing gas,” is commonly used to make treatment more comfortable. This sedation is inhaled through a mask, allowing you to breathe in the medication and inducing a state of relaxation. Local anesthetic will also be administered to eliminate pain in many cases. You will remain awake but relaxed throughout your visit and be able to drive back home or to work after treatment, because the nitrous oxide wears off by the time you’re finished.

For those patients undergoing third molar extractions, we also offer IV sedation. This is a deeper and longer-lasting relaxation method, so it is necessary to bring a parent or adult during treatment and to drive you home afterward.
