Sedation Dentistry
- Nitrous Oxide and
Oral Conscious Sedation

Nitrous Oxide

Visiting the dentist can bring forth fear and anxiety for many patients. Thanks to sedation
dentistry, we at Vanguard Dental can make appointments relaxing for every patient that visits
the dental chair. With the use of nitrous oxide, often known as "laughing gas," patients can feel
relaxed and comfortable during their dental treatment. From simple cleanings to cosmetic procedures,
patients can request nitrous oxide to stay comfortable and calm throughout their treatments.


Nitrous oxide is administered through a face mask, and is an odorless gas that can calm a patient. It relaxes the individual so they are still conscious and aware of their surroundings. Many adults compare it to the feeling of several glasses of wine, making them less anxious about their treatment.

When a patient has Nitrous Oxide sedation at Vanguard Dental, they will not need to schedule transportation to and from their appointment. The effects of nitrous oxide disappear as soon as the mask is removed. The patient is fully coherent and able to drive back home or to work immediately, making it a wonderful alternative to oral sedation and other methods used by other dental offices in the area. It is safe and effective in addressing fear and concern in patients who are less than thrilled about visiting the dentist.

Initial Visit Nitrous Oxide
Vanguard Dental offers sedation dentistry to allow our patients the ability to have a positive experience at the dentist, instead of an anxiety-ridden, fearful one. Patients of all ages can have nitrous oxide sedation, making it one of the safest and most effective ways to relieve patients of their fears. In order to receive sedation, all you have to do is ask!

Initial Visit Oral Conscious Sedation
It is important that you discuss any fears or concerns you may have with your dentist for her to educate you on the procedure you will be undergoing, as well as what to expect. Patients who are open and honest with their dentist will receive the best, most individualized care they can expect from a compassionate, concerned dentist. Call Vanguard Dental today to schedule your appointment and learn about the benefits of nitrous oxide sedation.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Vanguard Dental offers sedation dentistry while you relax comfortably. Dr. Kanorwalla and her team can complete the dental treatments required, often in just one visit. For oral sedation, you take a small pill an hour before you come to the office. This will help you feel calm and comfortable during the procedure.

I love Vanguard Dental. Dr. Kanorwalla was gentle with her touch, understood my fears and explained things, so I was able to put my mind at ease. I only wish I found Vanguard Dental earlier.
