Why Choose Sage Dental Care for Sedation Dentistry?

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that’s effective and safe for children and adults alike. You breathe it in through a mask that fits over the nose, and within minutes, you should begin to feel lighter, calmer, and happier—though you won’t start cackling as the nickname suggests. The effects also wear off quickly following your appointment, which means it’s easy to return to your daily schedule with minimal disruption.

Oral Conscious Sedation

If you’re in need of a stronger sedative, our team can provide a prescription for medication. You’ll be instructed to take the sedative at a certain time before your appointment begins. Someone will need to escort you both to and from our office. Once the effects take hold, you should feel deeply relaxed and you might not remember much about the appointment, as if it were a dream.
