Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Oral conscious sedation is taken via a pill several hours prior to treatment. It is most ideal for those with mild to severe levels of dental phobia or anxiety. By the time you get to our dental office, you should feel relaxed enough to receive treatment. Keep in mind that you’ll still be awake enough to receive basic commands and inform us of your comfort, but you’ll still have little memory of the overall treatment. It’s one of the most effective solutions for patients who would prefer to forget the experience of the appointment.
Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is an odorless and colorless gas designed to ease patients with mild levels of dental anxiety. Mixed with oxygen, nitrous oxide keeps patients calm throughout their treatment and is administered through a nasal mask. Once your appointment is over, we can remove the effects of the sedative relatively quickly, allowing you to resume your daily activities without worry. Unlike stronger methods, you won’t need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from the dental office.
