Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

For this type of sedation, we’ll give you a pill to take before your appointment. As the pill is digested, the anti-anxiety medication will enter your bloodstream, putting you in a highly-relaxed state. You may feel groggy, but you won’t be unconscious; you’ll still be able to follow our instructions as needed. Oftentimes, you may not even remember what happened while you were under the effects of oral conscious sedation, which can make it an excellent choice for patients with more advanced anxiety.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a lighter form of sedation that’s suitable for patients who only have mild dental anxiety. You’ll wear a comfortable mask over your nose so that you can breathe in the sedative along with oxygen. This will keep you in a relaxed and happy state, making you much more comfortable with what’s going on around you. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off after about 5 minutes once you stop breathing it in, so you’ll be able to drive home by yourself afterward.
