Sedation Dentistry Options

We provide several levels of sedation dentistry:

Oral Conscious Sedation

Smile Avenue offers oral conscious sedation as a mild sedative for patients who are nervous about dental treatment. This drug, taken as a pill before the procedure begins, can be used in varying degrees of strength. With mild sedation, patients become drowsy and may fall into a light sleep.

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas is a form of light sedation typically recommended for young patients or those with mild anxiety levels. Odor-free, color-free laughing gas is administered through a comfortable breathing mask. Our dentists always carefully administer the gas released, ensuring you stay relaxed and comfortable while awake enough to follow instructions.

IV Sedation

IV sedation uses anti-anxiety medication to help patients feel more relaxed during a medical procedure. Dr. Vuong will adjust the medication as needed to help ensure a relaxing and practical patient experience.

Sedation Dentistry For Children

If your child is anxious, has unique healthcare needs, or needs extra help staying calm and comfortable during their dental visit, we may recommend our sedation dentistry for children services. Dr. Vuong is a skilled sedation dentistry specialist who can provide specialized care for your child's unique situation. Our dental team will create a sedation plan tailored to your little one's unique needs and health history.
