Do you provide nitrous gas and oral sedation?
We want to make sure that you are always comfortable, so we provide nitrous oxide as well as oral sedation at our Graham dental office. Both are very effective, and we'll choose the option that is most appropriate for your specific needs.
Nitrous oxide is a very mild form of sedation that works well for the majority of patients with mild anxiety. You simply sit back and breathe, and soon you will drift into a comfortable and relaxed state. Nitrous oxide will not put you to sleep or knock you out – it will just dull your senses so that the sights and sounds around you fade into the background.
Oral conscious sedation is helpful if you experience greater anxiety during treatment. Before your scheduled appointment, Dr. Caddell will prescribe a calming medication for you to take about an hour before you arrive at our office.
We can combine nitrous oxide and oral sedation for the ultimate in stress-free treatment. A member of our caring professional team will monitor your sedation and stay with you before, during, and after your procedure. Please note that if we use oral conscious sedation, you will need a designated driver to get to and from your appointment.
Please contact our Graham dental office if you would like more information about our sedation options.
