Why Choose NaLa Smiles for Sedation Dentistry?

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Patient with nitrous oxide nose mask

This colorless, odorless gas almost instantly helps a patient feel warmer, calmer, and more relaxed after it has been inhaled, and it’s so gentle that we can even use it with young children. It is administered using a small mask placed over the nose that remains on for the entire appointment. Once it’s removed, a patient should feel completely normal within a few minutes and be able to return to their day without any lasting drowsiness.

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

For patients with severe dental phobia or who need extensive care, our dentists can prescribe them medication to take at home on the day of their appointment. That way, by the time someone actually sits in the treatment chair, they are already sedated both mentally and physically. Most patients remain awake and are able to respond to basic commands, but many actually end up falling asleep! This approach helps appointments fly by in a flash, and most have little to no memory of their visit afterward.
