Oral Conscious Sedation
For those who have particularly strong reservations about dental care, oral conscious sedation may be the best option. The sedative is taken as a pill at a set time before the treatment begins (usually at home), causing the patient to enter an extremely relaxed state. They won’t be bothered by anything that happens around them while under sedation, and they likely won’t even remember much afterward. The patient must have someone drive them to and from our office on the day of their visit.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
If you’re only a little nervous about your upcoming dental visit, nitrous oxide sedation is probably perfect for you. More commonly known as “laughing gas,” you’ll inhale this colorless and odorless gas through a small mask placed on your nose. Within a minute, you’ll feel a warm, comforting sensation. Once your procedure is completed, the mask will be removed and the effects will wear off almost instantly. You’ll be able to go on with your day normally right afterward.
