Sedation dentistry is a specialty that provides the ultimate comfort during dental treatment. If you have dental phobia, strong gag reflex, difficulty getting numb, sensitive teeth, traumatic dental experience, high anxiety about the needle, the noise, the smell, or complex dental problems, then sedation dentistry is for you. We provide the entire spectrum of sedation ranging from nitrous sedation, IV sedation to general anesthesia by an experienced board certified adult and pediatric anesthesiologist Dr. Lena Wang.
Nitrous Oxide “Laughing Gas”
In Nitrous Oxide sedation, you breathe a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a nasal mask that make you feel relaxed after a few minutes.
IV Sedation or Intravenous Sedation provides deep relaxation, amnesia and makes a person drowsy and unaware of painful stimuli generated during the procedure. Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the use of sedatives. IV sedation is both safe and effective when administered by a trained professional.
In general anesthesia, you are in a deep state of sleep, unconscious and unresponsive. General anesthesia provides complete amnesia of the unpleasant dental procedures performed.
