At Crown Dental Care, we are committed to the comfort of our patients. We are proud to offer dental sedation to help manage discomfort and anxiety before and during dental treatment. We offer several options depending on the intensity of the procedure and the needs of the patient.
Local anesthesia is used strictly for pain management. It is applied by injection directly to the site of treatment to numb the immediate area. The patient will experience little-to-no pain during the treatment. Local anesthesia will not help to reduce anxiety, but it can provide comfort in knowing that the procedure will not be painful.
Oral sedation is taken in the form of a pill shortly before treatment. This will help the patient remain calm and relaxed during treatment. It typically takes a few hours for the medicine to wear off, so it is necessary to have an adult companion to transport the patient home.
Laughing gas is an inhaled vapor used before and during dental treatment through a special mask. Laughing gas is known for resolving any feelings of anxiety nervousness. The patient will return to normal almost immediately after the mask is removed. Laughing gas is safe for patients of all ages.
