Sedation Dentistry in
Fredericksburg, Virginia

Many people avoid getting needed oral care because they are afraid of undergoing treatment. At the office of Heresi Dental Care, we understand your anxiety, and we do our best to eliminate it with state-of-the-art in-office amenities such as massage chairs, blankets and pillows, flat-screen TVs in patient rooms, Netflix, and music. For patients who need more, we offer dental sedation using laughing gas.

Sedation Dentistry in Fredericksburg VA

This sedation technique is also known as inhalation sedation and has been found to be a great way to help patients who have a fear of dental treatments. Laughing gas is a colorless, sweet-smelling gas. Under the effects of laughing gas sedation, patients report feeling light-headed and free of anxiety, but are still conscious and can respond to our cues during the treatment. The gas is mixed with oxygen, and the patient is able to inhale it using a mask placed on their nose. Once the procedure is over, the gas is turned off, and the effects go away almost immediately.

Advantages of using laughing gas:

  • We can adjust the level of sedation during the procedure
  • Inhalation sedation has no side effects on your lungs or heart
  • It does not have a “hangover” effect
  • It works rapidly and produces a sedation effect within 20 seconds
