Sedation Dentistry

Dental Sedation in Stockton, CA

Dr. Parikh and Dr. Arora offer inhalation sedation, commonly known as nitrous oxide or “laughing gas,” for both children and adults who experience dental phobia or anxiety. Please note, that our sedation does NOT put patients to sleep.

The nitrous oxide delivery system provides a precise mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen gases. The gas is inhaled through a facemask and begins to work immediately, while the patient stays awake. The level of sedation is monitored throughout the procedure to make sure you stay relaxed and free from pain.

The best part of receiving nitrous oxide sedation is the quick recovery time. When your treatment is complete, you will only need to sit and breathe solely oxygen for five minutes to regain normal consciousness.

Here at Nu Smile Dental in Stockton, CA, we believe that your dental experience should be as relaxing and stress-free as possible. If you have mild to moderate levels of anxiety, wish to remain awake and relaxed throughout your visit, and prefer a rapid recovery period, nitrous oxide could be the ideal sedation choice for you.

Don't let anxiety keep you from getting the dental care and procedures you need! Take advantage of sedation dentistry at Nu Smile Dental and be calm and relaxed during treatment. Call our Stockton, CA dental office at (209) 955-1800 to learn more or schedule your next appointment!
