Everything you need for a healthy smile

We’re putting your comfort first

We understand when patients are anxious or have fear of needles and take great care in providing the environment and understanding to make every visit as stress free as possible.

At Dental Solutions we are pleased to offer our patients safe, comfortable and effective options of sedation. Sedation is appropriate for people with dental anxiety and other medical issues.

We offer two types of sedation

Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation

Like the name suggests, this is a sedative taken in pill form. Depending on the dosage, it can induce a low or moderate sedation. With a moderate sedation, you won’t remember much of the procedure even though you’re conscious. In some cases, patients become groggy to the point where they fall asleep! Most sedation dentistry practices ask that the patient take the pill an hour before the procedure.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide affectionately called “laughing gas“ is perfect for people who have mild anxiety. During the procedure, you’ll be awake but very relaxed. The gas is administered through a mask placed over your face, and you simply have to breathe in normally. It’s a very low impact sedative, allowing you to drive following the completion of the procedure.
