Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Patients with moderate levels of dental phobia or anxiety can often benefit from oral conscious sedation. You’ll take this sedative, which comes in the form of a pill, at a certain time before your procedure is set to begin. By the time you get settled in the treatment chair, you’ll feel deeply relaxed, though you’ll likely remain awake the entire time. The sedative’s effects can linger for the rest of the day, so we ask that you arrange for someone to drive you to and from our dental office.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide provides a milder form of dental sedation. We’ll administer this clear, odorless gas through a tiny mask that we place over your nose. Since the mask is worn throughout your procedure, we can alter the dosage at any moment to ensure your comfort and safety. You’ll feel relaxed and light, and although you probably won’t doze off, your memories of the treatment might be fuzzy. Once our team has finished, we’ll take off the mask, and you’ll be good to continue on with your day after just a few minutes.
