You can relax during your visit here as our team always uses the latest treatment techniques to ensure your peace of mind.

Deep Sedation & General Anesthesia for Adults & Children

Patients with severe dental anxiety or special healthcare needs, or those who are about to undergo a lengthy procedure can take advantage of our deep sedation and general anesthesia services. This type of sedation is designed to put patients into a comfortable sleep to help promote a more productive and relaxing time in the dentist's chair.

Before your procedure, our anesthesiologist will review your entire medical history to help select the safest option for you. They will be right alongside you before, during, and after the procedure to monitor your progress!

Conscious Oral Sedation

If you suffer from dental anxiety, our Doctors may recommend conscious oral sedation. Anti-anxiety pills are designed to tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel nervous or afraid. Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive after your appointment. Make sure you have a friend or family member pick you up and drive you home following your appointment.

Laughing Gas

Dental anxiety can prevent many patients from visiting the dentist for checkups and much-needed dental work. If dental appointments make you anxious, our Doctors can administer laughing gas to help you feel more at ease during your visit. At O2 Dental Group of Wilmington, laughing gas is administered using a mask, allowing you to feel more at ease within minutes. If you are feeling anxious about an upcoming treatment, ask about laughing gas. Most of our patients are good candidates for this treatment, including our pediatric dental patients.
