For fearful patients, we offer calming Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas), as well as Conscious Sedation to offer a calming “twilight” feeling to help alleviate the stress of dental treatment. While we can’t “put you to sleep” for treatment, conscious sedation offers a safe alternative to general anesthesia to alleviate the fear of dental treatment and allow us to complete more extensive or stressful treatment needs in a more comfortable manner.
