Sedation Options in Salinas, CA
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation, also known as "laughing gas," is commonly used by Dr. Chao & Dr. Bui to make treatment more comfortable. The nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask, leaving you feeling relaxed. Local anesthetic will be administered in conjunction with nitrous oxide to eliminate pain. Nitrous oxide is designed to make procedures easier for nervous patients and has been effective for many years.
Oral sedation is an excellent option for patients who have severe dental anxiety. It is simply taken in pill or liquid form and ingested at a set time before treatment. The drug produces a calming effect to make the visit to Salinas Valley Dental Care a much less stressful experience. Oral sedation is simple, safe and has very few side effects.
