Oral Conscious Sedation
For more severe cases of dental anxiety or for advanced procedures, we may recommend oral conscious sedation. We will prescribe a pill that you will take a few hours before you arrive for your appointment. When we’re ready to begin, you’ll already be relaxed and in a dream-like state. In fact, don’t be surprised if you don’t remember the details about your visit. Just keep in mind that someone will need to drive you to and from our office as the effects can last for hours afterward.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, is a gentle sedative that makes the patient feel content and warm, perfect for those who experience mild to moderate anxiety in the dental chair. It is so gentle that it can be used with children! The gas is inhaled through a nasal mask and kicks in within minutes, and once the sedative has been removed, the effects wear off quickly, allowing the patient to return to normal activities.
