Relax During Your Visit
Nitrous oxide sedation, commonly known as “laughing gas,” is used to make treatment more comfortable. This sedation is inhaled
through a mask that allows you to breathe in the medication, inducing a state of relaxation. Local anesthetic is administered
along with nitrous oxide to eliminate pain in most cases. Since this is a light sedation, the effects wear off quickly. You
will be able to drive yourself home when treatment is completed!
Comfortable Anesthesia Delivery with The Wand™
Dr. Ryan is proud to utilize the first computer-controlled local anesthetic system called The Wand. This device provides precise
dosages and also pre-anesthetizes tissue so that by the time the fluid is delivered, most patients tell us “I didn't feel a thing!”
Not only is The Wand more accurate and safer than the traditional needle, but because it is precisely computer-controlled, it
reduces much of the unnecessary numbness of the tongue, cheek, and face. Imagine leaving the dentist’s office without feeling a “fat lip”!
