Putting You At EaseWe understand how difficult it can be to manage your anxiety about dental surgery or other dental procedures. At Icon Dental Center, we offer sedation to patients who are extremely uncomfortable with dental work. Inhaled minimal and oral sedation may be an appropriate solution to help you overcome your fears and get through the treatment you need. Dr. Valentine and Dr. Aboulhosn have great success with using sedation in a wide range of different dental procedures.
Main Types of Sedation
- Oral sedation – a minimal to moderate dose of the pill Halcion, making the patient drowsy
- Inhaled minimal sedation – You breathe nitrous oxide, otherwise known as “laughing gas,” combined with oxygen through a mask that’s placed over your nose. The gas helps you relax.
