Anxious Patients & Sedation Options

Our team understands that some people may feel nervous about the dentist. At Elliott Dental Studio, we offer a range of sedation options to help you feel comfortable and receive the treatment you need.


Do you feel anxious about the dentist?

Regular oral care is not only essential to your oral hygiene, but to your overall health. At Elliott Dental Studio, we want to help you get past your dental anxiety, which is why our dentists offer sedation options to help ease your fear.

Are sedation services right for me?

Our sedation options are designed to offer anxious patients a safe and comfortable means of receiving the treatment they need. Using a variety of techniques, we work to help our patients relax before and during their dental procedures, so they come away feeling more at ease with the notion of in-office oral care.


Nitrous Oxide

Also known as laughing gas, Nitrous Oxide is an inhaled gas that is available to anxious patients. The gas levels can easily be adjusted to fit your needs for your appointment.

This type of sedation is administered to relax the patient before dental work starts. Since it does not relieve pain, an anesthetic is also administered.

Oral Sedation

We can prescribe oral sedatives for you to take before your dental procedure. It takes about 15-20 minutes to take effect and can help make your anxiety a little more manageable.

This type of sedation can also be combined with nitrous oxide to provide another option for managing your fear of the dentist. 

Oral sedation is a safe and effective way to help you feel a little more comfortable before your dental procedure or oral surgery.

If your dentist agrees that sedation is right for you, we do ask that someone drives you home after taking oral sedation.
