Your procedure will be smoother than ever – and you’ll still have dazzling results to show off at the end! Contact us today if you have any questions or concerns for our team, or if you’re ready to schedule your first appointment.

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is administered to patients through a nasal mask that stays in place throughout treatment. Within minutes, patients inhaling this gas should start to feel calmer and even happier as our team works hard on improving your smile. Nitrous oxide is considered a mild sedative, and one of its strongest benefits is that the effects wear off just as quickly as they begin, allowing patients to return to work and even drive themselves home without the need for an escort.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a stronger sedation method that comes in medicinal form; our team will provide you with a prescription, as well as instructions regarding when to take the sedative before your appointment is scheduled to begin. While sedated, patients should enter a deep state of relaxation while remaining conscious enough to respond to the doctor’s commands; they may not even remember much about their appointment once it’s completed. When using oral conscious sedation, patients will need a trusted friend or family member to escort them both to and from our office. 


If you prefer to avoid controlled substances and medication during your appointment, NuCalm is a safe and effective system that can help patients naturally reach a very relaxed state of being that is similar to the first stage of sleep. With a combination of chewing tablets, microcurrent stimulation, soothing music through headphones, and light-blocking glasses, you’ll be able to lay back and feel genuinely at ease as our team improves your smile’s health and beauty.
