Oral Conscious Sedation

Some time before your treatment begins, we can give you some sedative medication (which is normally in the form of a pill). The effects of the sedative will leave you feeling very relaxed. Some people even end up falling asleep, although they can be easily awakened. This type of sedation can be very beneficial in cases where nitrous oxide sedation isn’t enough. That said, you do need to plan on asking an adult you trust to drive you home once the treatment is complete.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation can cause warm, euphoric feelings that help significantly reduce the anxiety you experience in the dental chair. For this type of sedation, you’ll wear a mask over your nose so that you can breathe in the nitrous oxide. To make sure you stay comfortable, our team will make any necessary adjustments to your nitrous oxide dosage throughout your treatment. The effects of nitrous oxide don’t linger for very long after you stop breathing it in, so there’s usually no need to have someone else take you home.
