Relaxation Dentistry FAQ’s

What is nitrous oxide?

You might know it as “laughing gas.” It is a colorless gas that Dr. Markowitz can use during your procedures to help you relax. It is safe when it is professionally administered and aids in reducing anxiety in many dental patients.

It is often used to sedate a patient for a short period of time or in unison with another sedation medication.

What is oral sedation?

Sometimes called “sedation dentistry”, oral sedation is administered by taking a small pill one hour prior to your appointment. All body functions remain normal and the person is able to breathe on their own. It helps most patients, allowing them to relax and have little or no memory of their dental appointment. Some patients are so relaxed that they sleep through their dental appointment. Oral sedation allows Dr. Markowitz to complete more dental procedures in a shorter period of time. A four-hour appointment will feel like a fifteen minute one.

Is oral sedation safe for me?

The history of oral sedation has proven its effectiveness and low-risk. Dr. Markowitz uses common medications, that are safe and widely prescribed. Vital signs are constantly monitored; from the moment you arrive at the office until Dr. Markowitz is comfortable with you leaving. In fact, he and his whole dental team are highly trained in safety and emergency procedures, making the dentist office one the safest places you can be!
