Using Nitrous Oxide
Hampden Dental Group uses nitrous oxide, a mild sedative, for simple procedures. This gentle gas allows you to resume regular activities, including driving, immediately after treatment. It is sometimes called laughing gas and is considered one of the most conservative treatments.
Sedation Options for Surgical Procedures
If you have an upcoming oral surgery, there are additional options for sedation available. Your oral surgeon will discuss the options, which include IV sedation and prescription drugs.
We use these sedation techniques for the following:
- Bone Grafting
- Wisdom Teeth Removal
- Gum Surgery
During these procedures, which are slightly more invasive, we go to extra measures to make sure your comfortable during the procedure.
