Oral Conscious Sedation

If you could take a pill that would make your dental nerves go away, would you do it? That’s basically how oral conscious sedation works! You’ll be prescribed medication to take at home on the day of your visit, so by the time you reach us, you’ll already be in a state of deep relaxation. You’ll stay awake, but time will go by very quickly, and you’ll likely only have fuzzy memories afterward.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a gentle form of sedation that is best for patients who just have minor to moderate dental anxiety. A small mask is placed over the nose, and the patient breathes in the odorless gas. Within a few minutes, they will feel a warm sense of wellbeing come over them. The mask stays on for the entire appointment, and after we take it off, a patient will feel completely normal right away while experiencing no lingering effects.
