We understand that patients can sometimes be fearful of the dentist. Whether you have had a negative experience or just have unexplained anxiety, Dr. Jeffrey Robertson is committed to your comfort and peace of mind.
Along with exceptional patient care and compassion, some patients need something to help them relax for their appointment. That is why we offer both nitrous oxide and non-IV conscious sedation. Dr. Robertson will be happy to discuss your options and help choose the best option for your situation.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide is a safe, mild sedative that has no restrictions. It enters and leaves your system quickly, so you will not have any driving restrictions or need someone to take you home. Nitrous oxide is perfect for shorter procedures.
Oral conscious sedation is a safe, stronger sedative. It lasts longer and the sedative effects are much more intense. Oral conscious sedation will make you completely relaxed and you may not have much memory of the procedure. You will be able to talk and answer questions, but may not be completely aware of your surroundings.
Oral conscious sedation is great for people who have longer or multiple procedures planned. You will need someone to take you home and monitor your well being for the rest of the day. To learn more call Irvine Dental today!
