Laughing Gas Sedation

Laughing gas sedation is our lowest level of dental sedation. Also known as laughing gas, it is safe for use with patients of all ages. The gas is inhaled via a face mask during dental treatment. Because of this administration style, the level of dental sedation is easily adjusted throughout treatment and will wear off shortly after we are through. This is a common and very safe form of dental sedation. If you need just a little bit of help relaxing, this might be the solution for you.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is designed for use with patients who are feeling a bit more fearful of dental procedures. We can even treat dental phobia. This type of sedation is administered orally — we prescribe the medication and you take it before coming to our office for the appointment. In this case, you will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from the office because you will be under the influence of the sedation. This premedication will help you feel care-free and very relaxed throughout your visit to our office. While this method of sedation dentistry is harder to adjust mid-procedure, it is still completely safe to use under the correct supervision. We will help you stay comfortable throughout your time in our care.

Dr. Lambert has been our family dentist for over 20 years. He is always professional, and he has gone out of his way for us when we’ve had emergencies. Carol Lee, the hygienist, is top notch, as is the rest of the staff. I highly recommend this dentist.

Dr. Lambert…..I just wanted to thank you for everything and tell you how much I enjoy coming to your office. Rare indeed is the experience of someone “enjoying” going to the dentist. Because you have done such an incredible job of staffing your business with people who create such an enjoyable, pleasant, comfortable yet professional environment, I enjoyed my experience.

Tricia W.

I am so impressed with Dr. Lambert and his staff that my whole family are now patients of his. I tell everyone I know that if they want a dentist that makes them feel at ease and possibly even enjoy dental visits, my dentist office is the one to see. Honestly, I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t met these wonderful people that have taken such great care of me.
