Sedation Dentistry

At Hamilton Family Dentistry, we strive to exceed our patients’ expectations and ensure their comfort. Some patients need a little extra help remaining calm, comfortable, and relaxed during their dental procedures, so we recommend sedation dentistry for these patients. If you suffer from dental phobia or anxiety, sensitive teeth, gums, or gag reflex, or you are looking to complete several procedures in a single visit, sedation dentistry may be helpful. Contact our team to find out more about our sedation options available for patients in Hamilton, Manchester, and other nearby communities.

  • Nitrous Oxide Sedation

    The longest used form of sedation, nitrous oxide is still the most popular sedation option we provide. Commonly referred to as laughing gas due to the euphoric effect it has on people, nitrous oxide sedation is fast acting, safely administered under professional observation, and the effects wear away just as quickly as they set in, allowing patients to resume their daily routines right away. Nitrous oxide sedation is ideal for patients who:
    • Have mild to moderate dental phobia or anxiety
    • Have difficulty numbing with local anesthesia alone
    • Have sensitive teeth, gums, or gag reflex
    • Have a cognitive or physical impairment that makes care unsafe or uncomfortable
  • Oral Conscious Sedation

    For those patients who have more severe dental phobia that makes it difficult for them to even leave home for treatment, oral conscious sedation may be a better solution. Patients take a prescription sedative at a predetermined time on the day of their procedure. This sedative allows the patient to relax and significantly reduces pain sensation. A trusted friend or family member should then drive patients to and from the office. During treatment, patients remain conscious, but feel very relaxed and most don’t remember their visit.
