Oral sedation and laughing gas with a Mission Viejo dentist in Ladera Ranch and Rancho Santa MargaritaCurrently, we offer three different types of dental sedation at Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch, near Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita. They are laughing gas, oral sedation, and IV sedation. Let’s talk a little about each of them!

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas remains the most popular form of dental sedation worldwide and provides a sense of deep relaxation and calm for many patients who use it. This form of dental sedation like all other dental sedation methods at Hales Parker Dentistry is a proven and safe dental sedation method that can help those suffering from dental anxiety to get the care that they need.

Oral Sedation

If laughing gas is not quite strong enough to suit your needs, then oral sedation could be the sedation dentistry method for you! Oral sedation – also known as oral conscious sedation – is administered in the form of a sedative pill, which provides a sense of deep calm so that dental anxiety can be overcome. If you choose to use oral sedation, our team will provide you the sedative pill and instructions for when that pill should be taken. In most cases, you will need to arrange a ride home from the dentist, as it can take a little while for the oral sedation to wear off.

Oral sedation makes Ladera Ranch patients calm and relaxed during their sedation dentistry appointments.

IV Sedation

Considered to provide potentially the deepest sense of relaxation of them all, IV sedation is administered intravenously and provides our team precise control on the amount of relaxation and calm it provides by being able to adjust the amount being administered. IV sedation does not make you fall asleep, rather it creates a sense of calm and peace while you still able to interact with the dentist if the need arises.
