What is sedation?

At Alamo Heights Periodontics, we realize that many of our patients are nervous about visiting the periodontist. Whether it is a fear of needles or stress about treatment that requires multiple visits, we strive to make each visit to our dental office as comfortable as possible.
We offer the following sedation options:

  • Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)
  • Oral Sedation (pill form)
  • IV Sedation

After thoroughly discussing your individual dental needs, Dr. Monica A. Flynn will determine which type of sedation will work best for you. Dr. Monica A. Flynn is one of a few periodontists in San Antonio who is certified to provide sedation for patients under age 13. For more information about sedation dentistry, please contact our office. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have!
