We know that for some, a visit to the dentist can evoke anxiety. That is why we are dedicated to transforming your dental experience with our sedation dentistry services at Elite Dental Care, designed to create a calm and serene atmosphere for your treatments.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry employs specific medications to help you feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. It is an ideal choice for those who experience discomfort or nervousness about dental care, enabling you to undergo treatments while feeling calm and at ease.

Types of Sedation We Provide

We offer a variety of sedation methods to suit different needs and preferences:

  • Nitrous Oxide: Also known as laughing gas, this sedative is administered through a mask that fits over your nose. It is an effective way to quickly alleviate anxiety while allowing you to remain conscious and communicative. The effects are mild and dissipate swiftly once the treatment is complete, enabling you to return to your day without any lingering grogginess.
  • Oral Sedation: For a deeper state of relaxation oral sedation involves taking a medication before your procedure. You will feel significantly relaxed but will remain awake enough to respond to our team’s instructions. This option requires that someone accompany you home, as the effects can take some time to wear off.

Safety and Comfort First

We take every precaution to ensure that sedation dentistry is safe and tailored to your needs. Prior to administering any sedative, we thoroughly assess your medical history and discuss all your options. During the procedure, our team closely monitors your comfort and vital signs to maintain the highest standards of safety.
