Our skilled dental professionals offer laughing gas to help make your time with us as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Schedule your next visit to learn more about the benefits of sedation dentistry.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Are you here for a routine visit, or are you undergoing an invasive dental procedure? No matter your needs, sedation dentistry may be the answer you need. Sedation dentistry is the use of medications such as sedatives and anesthesia during dental procedures.

At our practice, our team combines laughing gas with a local anesthetic to help put our patients in a state of calm and comfort. Dr. Riopelle offers sedation to patients who experience dental anxiety, have health conditions which make it difficult to relax during treatment, or have other care needs that can make dental visits uncomfortable or strenuous.

Laughing gas is also offered to help make our patients comfortable during a variety of routine or non-invasive procedures for a more relaxing overall care experience. Be sure to discuss dental anxiety and other care needs with Dr. Riopelle during your next visit to see if sedation dentistry is right for you!

What Is Laughing Gas?

Laughing gas is a mild form of sedation that is safe for patients of all ages. The breathable, sweet-smelling gas is combined with oxygen. It is administered through a small mask placed over your nose during treatment so that your mouth remains open during the procedure. Laughing gas puts the patient in a state of deep relaxation, ease, or giddiness. The gas can be easily monitored during treatment, allowing our team to control the dosage the patient receives. This helps us provide a safe environment for our patients, regardless of the procedure.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Yes, sedation dentistry is safe. Dr. Riopelle and his team have the years of training and experience necessary to safely administer laughing gas to our patients. During your first visit to our San Ramon office, we will take a thorough medical history and determine if laughing gas is right for you.

I recently moved to California, and have been searching for a good dentist. Having a trusted dentist is a must. I'm so glad I've found Dr. Riopelle! He is very thorough in his work, with new technologies that my crown was made in the office, in less than an hour I was out! The staff are wonderful and very friendly. Love the office space!

Dr Riopelle has been my dentist of choice for years now. He and his fellow family member have me all covered in different areas of medical needs. He is kind and caring and has great follow up to make sure you are not in pain and any procedures that were done are satisfactory to me.

Dr. Riopelle and his staff are AMAZING. After several bad experiences with other dentists Dr. Riopelle made me feel totally relaxed about the procedure he was going to do and talked me through what he was doing. His assistant, was so sweet and was very reassuring the entire visit. I couldn't be happier with my experience at Dr.Riopelles and I'm so thankful I can now continue going there. Plus, they are very affordable without dental insurance!
