Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

For individuals with moderate dental anxiety or who require multiple treatments, oral conscious sedation can be a beneficial option. Our dentist will prescribe a pill medication that is to be taken before the procedure. Because the effects will likely begin to occur before reaching our dental office, patients are required to have someone escort them to and from their appointments. With the help of oral conscious sedation, individuals will remain relaxed and at ease throughout their visit, allowing for a more efficient process that produces beautiful results.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide is considered the mildest form of sedation and is also referred to as “laughing gas.” Because the effects come on quickly and dissipate just as fast, it is safe for individuals to drive themselves to our dental office for treatment. Using a nasal mask, individuals are instructed to inhale the solution that produces a calming effect in just minutes. The dosage is controlled by our dental team to ensure safety, and once the gas is turned off, patients can expect to return to their normal selves in no time at all.
