Dr. Briceno utilizes sedation dentistry to help you achieve
a state of deep relaxation and calm - only then does he perform
the procedures necessary to restore your smile's proper functioning
and exceptional beauty. Through the modern miracle of sedation
dentistry, he can often accomplish dental work in one or two visits
that may have required many more visits without it. Nitrous
oxide and intravenous (I.V.) sedation are the two conscious
sedation techniques most commonly used to help patients relax.
Sedation with nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing
gas, decreases anxiety and promotes relaxation while you
remain conscious. Nitrous oxide and oxygen are mixed together
and then inhaled through a mask that covers the nose and
mouth prior to having a dental procedure performed to produce
sensations of lightheadedness, relaxation, and a comfortable,
warm-all-over feeling. Safe, effective, and non-invasive,
nitrous oxide is the sedation method of choice for anxious
or fearful patients.
Intravenous sedation alleviates pain and ensures your maximum
comfort during a planned dental procedure. Although you will
remain conscious following I.V. sedation, you will experience
a complete state of relaxation and will not feel pain. You
will be carefully monitored throughout the procedure to ensure
your safety. I.V. sedation is a good choice for patients who
wish to overcome their anxiety and fear of visiting the dentist
