Sedation Dentistry enables patients who have fear or anxiety of dental work to be able to take advantage of modern procedures. It relaxes the patient to the point that he or she will not feel anything during the procedure, and most likely will not remember anything. Sedation Dentistry enables the dentist to administer multiple procedures in just one sitting.
Dr. McRae offers 2 different types of Sedation for Las Vegas patients:
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas):
Light sedation which will last for the entire procedure. It produces a feeling of complete relaxation. You will be able to drive yourself home after the treatment completion.
We use a medication called Triazolam, a small blue pill, which is taken 30 minutes to one hour before the appointment. Various dosages may be given during the treatment appointment, depending on the severity of the anxiety and the patient’s response. Make sure there is someone to accompany you and to drive you home.
