Dr. Cavallo will work with you to manage your dental fear. One of the most effective ways to manage dental fear and anxiety is sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is a great way to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their treatment. We offer two types of sedation in our Woodbridge dental office: Oral Sedation Dentistry and Nitrous Oxide Sedation.

Oral Sedation: Oral sedation is administered through a pill. The pill is taken prior to your treatment. During oral sedation, patients will remain awake and completely relaxed throughout the treatment. Most patients report having little to no memory of their procedure. 

Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is administered through a special nasal mask. Nitrous oxide helps patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their procedure. The effects of nitrous oxide only occur when wearing the mask. Once the mask is removed, the effects of nitrous oxide diminish.
