If you receive laughing gas during your treatment, this form of sedation wears off very quickly and you will be able to drive yourself home after your procedure. Since laughing gas is inhaled, the effects wear off soon after Dr. Packard turns it off, and you will be free to go about the rest of your day as you normally would when your appointment is finished.
Yes! Sedation dentistry is very common, and Dr. Packard has years of experience administering sedatives safely to make patients more comfortable in the operatory. You can rest assured knowing you’re in good hands. The sedation dentistry options at Precision Dental will keep you calm and euphoric throughout your treatment, but you’ll be awake throughout.
At Precision Dental, we offer “laughing gas” and oral conscious sedation to keep our patients comfortable and pain-free during their procedures. Laughing gas is inhaled throughout treatment and will keep you awake, but in a euphoric state. One of the benefits of laughing gas is that it wears off quickly, so you’ll be able to drive yourself home after your appointment and go about the rest of your day as you normally would.
We also offer oral conscious sedation, which is taken in pill-form. This sedative induces a deep state of relaxation, and in the capable hands of Dr. Packard, you truly will have nothing to worry about. If you suffer from dental anxiety or phobia, or if you’re coming in for extensive treatment, give us a call today to go over your sedation options.
The cost of sedation dentistry varies depending on which type is administered and how much of it you need. We offer resources for our patients to help keep care at a cost you are comfortable with. We are in-network with a wide range of insurances and we offer financing options for patients who do not have dental insurance.
