We offer convenient sedation choices upon request:

Nitrous Oxide

“Laughing gas” is a safe, quick and easy way to calm your anxiety and sensitivity during even the most routine of appointments. The gas mixture helps you feel relaxed, warm, and a bit tingly while you sit back. It’s quickly reversible, so you can go right back to work or drive yourself home after your appointment. Even children can benefit from nitrous oxide!
