Oral Conscious Sedation
You’ll be prescribed some oral medication before your appointment. You’ll need to take it before you arrive at our office so that you’re relaxed by the time treatment begins. You won’t be asleep, but you won’t care about what’s going on around you either, and you may even forget what happened during the procedure at all. You’ll need to make arrangements for another adult to drive you to and from your appointment; you can normally expect the lingering effects of the sedative to last for the rest of the day.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
While we work hard to make sure every patient feels comfortable from the moment he or she arrives, we know that there are patients who need a little extra assistance relaxing and receiving the care they need. Nitrous oxide sedation has been used longer than almost any other anesthesia or sedative, and it offers patients reduced dental sensitivity and relaxation with minimal side effects. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a nasal mask, and the dosage is easily adjusted during treatment for optimal results. The sedative takes effect and wears off quickly, meaning patients are free to resume their daily activities immediately following treatment. Patients who experience dental fear or anxiety, have difficulty numbing with local anesthetic alone, or who need numerous or complex procedures may benefit from using nitrous oxide sedation.
