Nitrous Oxide, a gentle option to help you relax (safe for children)

For routine check-ups and simple procedures, a sedative like Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) can help you relax without putting your to sleep.

Stronger medications put you to sleep

For some people, sleeping through the dentist is the only option, and that's OK. For complex procedures like extracting wisdom teeth EVERYONE is completely sedated.
