Nitrous Oxide Gas

Our practice offers certain anesthetics for patients when requested in order to handle difficult procedures. Nitrous oxide is a relaxing gas that soothes patients and enables them to relax and experience a pleasant state instead of the discomfort of a dental procedure.

“I have been always scared of going to the dentist, ever since I was young. But with sedation dentistry from Dr. Lu, I was able to relax during my dental appointments and finally get the dental care I needed.”

Oral Sedation Dentistry

Under oral sedation dentistry, Dr. Lu’s patients are given an oral sedative, which puts them into a very drowsy, sleepy state, but they are not unconscious.

Sometimes referred to as “sleep” or “relaxation” dentistry, the terms describe the sensations most patients experience during their oral sedation appointments. Oral sedation allows Dr. Lu to help patients become as comfortable as possible.
