Sedation dentistry eases anxieties and phobias, helping you remain calm and comfortable during dental procedures.  At Palmerston Dental we offer Nitrous Oxide and Moderate Oral Sedation. Nitrous oxide sedation uses Nitrous oxide with oxygen that produces a calming effect. Moderate Oral Sedation uses an oral anti-anxiety medication that produces a sedative and amnesia effect. For both procedres the patient is carefully monitored during the entire procedure. If you think sedation dentistry is for you the Dentist will first complete an assessment to determine if you are a candidate for either sedation method and if so then our team will walk you through what to expect before, during and after.
