Anxiety-Free Dentistry

At BLUSH Dental Studio, we understand that dental treatments can be nerve-racking for some of our patients. As a result, we offer several sedation options to help you relax during treatment and experience anxiety-free dentistry:


Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

While not exactly a method of "sedation", nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is the most common anti-anxiety agent used in dentistry. Nitrous oxide (laughing-gas) is a colorless blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide gases with a pleasant, sweet smell and taste. Administration is comfortable and painless, involving no more than a mask over the nose. When inhaled, nitrous oxide creates a sense of well-being and relaxation while still leaving you fully conscious throughout treatment. Breathing pure oxygen for several minutes after treatment completely reverses the effects. Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is a stress-free anti-anxiety option for patients of all ages.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation involves taking a carefully-prescribed sedative (pill) shortly before your appointment. During conscious sedation, you will be in a relaxed state, but still responsive. For an enhanced relaxed state, oral conscious sedation can be combined with nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Please note that patients treated with oral conscious sedation must be accompanied to and from our practice and may not drive or drink alcohol for a specified period post treatment.
