Oral Conscious dental Sedation

About an hour before your treatment begins, you’ll take some special medication. Once it takes effect, you’ll start to feel extremely relaxed. You might even be comfortable enough to fall asleep, but we can wake you up with a gentle nudge. You’ll be able to answer our questions, but you likely will have little to no memory of the treatment afterward. Plan on having someone else drive you home, as the effects of the sedative need time to fully wear off.


Nitrous Oxide dental Sedation

If you only experience minor anxiety during dental care, nitrous oxide can go a long way toward soothing your nerves. A small mask is placed over your nose so that you can breathe in the sedative; it will only take a few minutes before you start to feel relaxed and euphoric. You’ll wear the mask for the duration of your treatment, but once it’s removed, the effects will go away very quickly, allowing you to return to your normal daily routine right away.
