Sunnyvale Sedation Dentist Enhances Patient Comfort for Sunnyvale, CA
Is anxiety preventing you from achieving a stronger, healthier smile? At our Sunnyvale Office, Dr. Provines uses two effective forms of sedation dentistry: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. Using one or both of these two forms of sedation, we can make your next appointment more relaxing as you finally receive the help you need.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is breathed in through a special mask and produces a pleasant feeling of relaxation within minutes. During your appointment, we’ll ensure your safety by controlling how much nitrous you receive. Once your procedure is over, we’ll remove your mask and monitor you as the effects of your sedation wear off. Within a few minutes, you’ll be capable of driving yourself home and continuing with your daily activities.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation uses a specially prescribed oral medication to create feelings of relaxation in patients who struggle with mild to moderate anxiety. On the day of your procedure, you’ll take your medication as prescribed and come to the office with the help of a friend or family member. Once your anxiety has melted away and you’re relaxed, Dr. Provines will begin working on your smile. Afterward, your friend or family member will drive you home and stay with you until your sedation has worn off. You’ll be free to return to your normal activities by the next day, if not sooner.
