Sedation Dentistry Services

Our local Laredo, TX dental office provides the following selection of sedation dentistry:

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas, also known as inhalation sedation, is a form of light sedation and is typically offered to our youngest patients or patients who experience mild anxiety in the dental chair. Laughing gas is a colorless, odor-free gas that is administered through a comfortable breathing mask.

Dr. Cavazos always carefully controls the amount of gas to ensure maximum safety and comfort. With this form of sedation, you can expect to be fully relaxed while still fully awake and able to follow instructions.

IV Sedation

Ahh...Smile offers intravenous (IV) sedation, also referred to as sleep dentistry, to patients who experience extreme dental anxiety, have special healthcare needs, or for those who are set to undergo oral surgery or long treatment.

Under IV sedation, patients experience the effects of an anti-anxiety medication that is directly administered into the veins. Patients will not be fully put to sleep, but will experience relaxation and, in some cases, temporary memory loss. Dr. Cavazos will monitor and adjust the medication as needed throughout the appointment.
