Sedation Options at Edgemont Dental
Nitrous oxide sedation is a technique used to relax anxious patients before and during a dental procedure. It’s delivered through a nasal mask that puts many patients at ease from the start. Nitrous oxide is often called “laughing gas,” and the effects wear off within minutes of introducing pure oxygen and ceasing the use of the nitrous oxide.
Oral sedation requires taking a dentist-prescribed pill several hours before your appointment and again closer to the start. You’ll also require someone to drop you off and pick you up afterward while the effects wear off. Oral sedation is an easy and safe way to feel at ease during complex or lengthy dental procedures.
Night Guards and Sports Guards

Night guards can offer a range of benefits while you sleep. This oral appliance is custom-designed to provide you with a comfortable cushion between the upper and lower rows of teeth, helping to prevent grinding at night.
