You do not need a referral to come to our office for oral surgery or dental sedation.
Nitrous oxide or "laughing gas" is a great option for dental anxiety as it is very effective in calming you and the effects wear off after just a few minutes of removing the laughing gas mask. You can drive yourself home after treatment.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral sedation is when the dentist prescribes a strong oral sedative for you to take prior to treatment. You will be conscious and very relaxed during treatment. Oral sedation can be combined with laughing gas to enhance the sedative effect. You will need someone to drive you home (or take a taxi) after your appointment.
General anesthesia, also known as sleep dentistry is when you are "put under" by the dentist and anesthetist to receive your dental treatment. You are not conscious during treatment. You will need a caregiver to drive you home and stay with you for 24 hours post treatment.
