Dental sedation offers several key benefits for patients of all ages. The key benefits you can achieve with all forms of sedation is as followed:

  • Fewer Dental Visits: Under dental sedation, your dentist may be able to perform multiple treatments during one office visit; as a result, patients will have fewer visits to the dentist office.
  • Anxiety Relief: Patients who experience dental fear or anxiety, dental sedation can help them feel comfortable and relaxed during their treatment.
  • Quicker Treatment: Sedation dentistry allows patients to remain relaxed and comfortable during their treatment; this enables your dentist to work quicker and more efficiently throughout your treatment.

Sedation Dentistry What to Expect

We offer a range of sedation dentistry option in our Nesconset dentist office. Your dentist will work with you to determine the best form of sedation for your dentistry needs. After your evaluation, we may recommend one of the following forms of sedation.


N2O is often referred to as “laughing gas,” which is one of the most common forms of dental sedation. This type of sedation is inhaled through a nasal mask and usually takes effect as soon as it is administered. Once the nasal mask is removed, the effects of the gas dimish. UnderN2O, many patients experience a relaxed and calm state.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is administered in the form of a pill. The pill is taken before your scheduled appointment. Under oral sedation, patients will need to coordinate a ride to and from our office, since they can not drive themselves.

Oral sedation allows patients to remain relaxed throughout their treatment. They are also able to respond to any verbal command from their dentist.
