Sedation Dentistry

At Active Dental, we understand that dental anxiety can be a significant barrier to receiving necessary dental care. That’s why we are proud to offer sedation dentistry options, including oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas), designed to make dental visits more comfortable and less stressful for anxious patients. Our goal is to provide a safe, anxiety-free environment where all patients can receive the care they need without fear or discomfort.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a convenient and effective way to help reduce dental anxiety. This method involves taking a prescribed sedative pill before your dental appointment, allowing you to feel relaxed and calm by the time you arrive at our office. While you remain awake and able to communicate, you’ll be in a state of deep relaxation throughout your treatment.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation: The Benefits for Anxious Patients

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is another sedation option we offer to help manage dental anxiety. This gas is inhaled through a mask placed over your nose, producing feelings of relaxation and euphoria within minutes. Here are some of the key benefits of nitrous oxide for anxious dental patients:

  • Fast-Acting Relief: Nitrous oxide begins to work within minutes, quickly easing anxiety and fear.
  • Controlled Sedation: The level of sedation can be adjusted in real-time during the procedure, ensuring you remain comfortable throughout your treatment.
  • Minimal Side Effects: Nitrous oxide is well-tolerated, with minimal side effects, and its effects wear off quickly once the mask is removed, allowing you to resume your day without downtime.
  • Safe for All Ages: Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedation option for both adults and children, making it a versatile choice for anxious patients of any age.

Had a great experience with Dr. Josh. He was thorough with my dental check up and professional at all times. He informed me of preventative/pro-active measures to maintain health teeth & gums. Likewise, he was able to get rid of calculus/plaque build up on my lower central & lateral incisors. I would recommend him to anyone that is wanting a pleasant time & helpful dentist! FYI - He’s the one with the crazy hair and nice beard.

I had an emergency on a Saturday and they were able to get me in immediately, literally within 10 minutes. The staff was friendly and efficient, and diligent about getting my insurance sorted out and explaining costs upfront. Dr. Bolus was awesome in explaining to me the treatment plan and effectively resolved my emergency issue within 30 minutes and made sure I was as comfortable as possible. I came back for my annual cleaning 4 months later and that experience was similarly quick, thorough, efficient and comfortable.

My wife and I came in at 5:00, although they are open until 7pm. It was very easy to get in and be seen!! The Dentist was young but quite knowledgeable! Handsome also, as my wife says. The staff and nurses were very prompt in explaining everything and were great as well. Dr. JOSH is amazing!! Thank you Collins St. Dental!!!

Usually I am very nervous/anxious when going to the dentist but today I felt completely at ease here. Ally was so sweet when I spoke to her to make my appointment and she is just as sweet in person. Everyone there is so kind and Doctor Bolus was the kindest gentleman I’ve met in Dentistry. I would highly recommend Collin St Dental to everyone!

My first experience was with Ally. I had just moved and a few days later I was in horrible pain. She talked to me and made me feel at ease. Meet with Dr Bolus and he was amazing! He diagnosed the problem and took great care of me. My husband and I have had several visits and have had a great experience with all the staff! They are the best!!
