Types of Sedation Dentistry Services
We offer three different types of sedation and will make a recommendation based on your level of fear and history. Types of sedation include:
Intravenous (IV) Conscious Relaxation
This is typically administered during oral surgery procedures, such as wisdom tooth removal. It is very effective for patients with a very high level of fear. It involves administering sedative medication directly into the bloodstream and most patients will fall into a semi-conscious state. You will not have any memory of the procedure under this type of sedation and will need someone to drive you home.
This type of sleep dentistry involves taking a sedative in the form of a pill about an hour before your appointment. You will feel drowsy and relaxed during your visit and will need someone to drive you home after your procedure. The drowsiness typically wears off within a few hours after treatment.
Nitrous Oxide (N20)
Also known as laughing gas, this is a very effective method of relaxation and is easy to control. It is administered via mask and starts to work within minutes. You will be breathing in an odorless and colorless gas for a few minutes and the effects include a tingling sensation in the hands, and feelings of euphoria. Once the gas is stopped, you will start to feel normal within a few minutes.

“My overall experience at Nevada Oral & Facial Surgery was outstanding. I was very nervous about my procedure and Dr.Johnson and his wonderful staff assured me that everything would be just fine. The surgery went as promised and I have no complaints about the entire experience. Thank you all at Nevada Oral & Facial Surgery for everything.”
“I just had all of my wisdom teeth removed here. I had a GREAT experience! The staff was very friendly. I was nervous coming in and they were very accommodating to my worries. I was put under for the procedure. When I woke up, I wasn’t in pain and again, the staff was very nice and answered all of my questions. Recovery has been very pleasant. They did a wonderful job! I can’t recommend this place enough!”
“It was fantastic! How many people can say that about oral surgery? Dr. Johnson, Brittany and everyone I came in contact with was the best. I would never hesitate to say how great my experience was. Thanks Dr. Johnson and staff.”
