Our team at Palm Beach Periodontics in Boynton Beach and West Palm Beach is committed to helping our patients feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. We understand that dental treatment can often be uncomfortable and anxiety-inducing. That’s why we are proud to offer several sedation options.

Oral Conscious Sedation

One effective, non-invasive method is oral conscious sedation. This option allows you to experience a deep sense of relaxation while still remaining conscious and able to communicate with our team, ensuring your safety and well-being throughout the procedure. This method involves the use of an oral medication that will leave you in a much more relaxed state during the procedure, and oftentimes, leave you with no memory of the procedure after it is completed.

Nitrous Oxide

Another sedation option we offer is nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective form of sedation that can help you feel calm and at ease during your dental procedure. It is administered by inhaling a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a mask placed over your nose. This type of sedation allows you to remain conscious and responsive but in a more relaxed state with no residual effects after the procedure is completed.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

At Palm Beach Periodontics, your safety is always our top priority. Sedation and other forms of anesthesia are considered safe for use and have been used for many years in the dental field. You can feel confident knowing that our team is highly trained and experienced in administering sedation–always keeping your safety and comfort in mind.


Our team is always helping our patients to feel comfortable and confident from the moment they walk into our office, to the moment they leave. We are happy to help you learn more about your sedation options, for your unique dental needs–please contact our team at 561-734-2001 in Boynton Beach or 561-967-0476 in West Palm Beach if you have any additional questions or concerns!

Patient Reviews

Palm Beach Periodontics is absolutely amazing! I would give 10 stars if possible. My daughter had an emergency and needed to see a periodontist immediately, I called the office around 11:30 and they got her in at 1:30 the same day! The ladies in the office were all absolutely amazing and accommodating.
