If you’re looking for a simple way to take the stress and anxiety out of your next dental visit, consider the benefits of sedation dentistry as Castaño Periodontics. Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to help you relax during dental treatments like dental implant placement, extractions, periodontal surgery, or other procedures. When you’re comfortable, it allows our Denville specialist to complete your procedure in less time with minimal discomfort.

Nitrous oxide can quickly provide pain & anxiety relief
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a mild sedative used in sedation dentistry to help patients relax during most dental procedures. It works without putting you to sleep. During your procedure, you will inhale the nitrous oxide through a small mask placed over your nose. Within minutes, you’ll begin to feel relaxed and comfortable, almost as if you’ve had a couple of glasses of wine.
Nitrous oxide can also provide some pain relief and helps to reduce anxiety, but a local anesthetic is still used to numb any teeth. Nitrous oxide can easily be adjusted throughout the procedure and wears off quickly, so it’s safe enough to drive yourself home after the appointment.
At Denville Sedation Dentistry, we may recommend oral sedation for a variety of procedures. Oral sedation dentistry is a great option for those who experience moderate to severe dental anxiety or more complex treatment needs. It can also be useful for those who require multiple procedures during a single visit.
Oral sedation dentistry involves taking a pill or liquid medication before the procedure, which then causes you to feel relaxed and sleepy throughout the appointment. Depending on the dosage, you may be able to stay awake throughout the appointment, or you may drift in and out of sleep. The amnesic effects prevent most people from remembering much about their appointment.
IV sedation involves medication delivered through an intravenous line for fast delivery and detailed dosing. We frequently recommend IV sedation for longer or more complex procedures like wisdom tooth removal, placing multiple dental implants, or similar full mouth reconstruction needs.
