Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is an incredibly common dental sedative used to help patients remain at ease during treatments. Administered through a nasal mask, nitrous oxide is incredibly fast-acting and triggers a sensation of relaxing and even light euphoria when inhaled. Once treatment is complete, Dr. Malecki can easily remove the sedative as quickly as he provided it, meaning you can resume your regular day-to-day activities without interruption.
Even if you struggle with severe dental anxiety or phobia, your smile needs regular professional attention to remain healthy. If other methods of sedation are not enough to put you at ease during your time in the dental chair, IV sedation could prove extremely helpful. This sedative is administered directly into the veins and quite powerful, which means you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you from the practice for your own safety.
