Oral Conscious Sedation

When you choose to have oral conscious sedation performed, we will provide you with a pill. At a specific time before your treatment begins, you will ingest this pill; once it takes effect, it will put you in a highly relaxed state. While you will still be awake and capable of responding to any instructions we give you, you will be unbothered by the sights and sounds of our dental practice. You may not even have a clear memory of what happened during your treatment. Be sure to make arrangements to have someone drive you home, as the effects of oral conscious sedation dentistry will linger for a while.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide puts you in a euphoric state that makes it easier to stay relaxed and comfortable while your teeth are being worked on. You’ll breathe in the nitrous oxide (which will be mixed with oxygen) through a small mask placed over your nose. The effects will start to kick in after just a few minutes of breathing in the sedative. One of the benefits of nitrous oxide is that the effects wear off more quickly compared to other forms of sedation, meaning you will be capable of driving yourself home once your treatment is complete.
