Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a colorless, almost odorless gas that we administer through a nasal mask. All you have to do is breathe it in, and within moments, you will start to feel relaxed and at-ease. This is one of the mildest forms of sedation, so we often recommend it for children as well as patients with mild to moderate anxiety about dental treatment. It is quite safe, and it is very convenient. In fact, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off almost as quickly as they set in, so you will be able to resume your normal routine immediately after your appointment. You should even be able to drive yourself home!

Oral Conscious Sedation

With oral conscious sedation, we simply prescribe a sedative in pill form that you should swallow shortly before your treatment is about to begin. Within minutes, you should start to feel relaxed. You might even feel drowsy. Once you are comfortable, we can get to work on treating your smile. You can expect an easy experience. In fact, most people do not have any memory of their procedure once the sedative wears off, making this method ideal for patients who feel nervous when they are exposed to the sights, sounds, and sensations of dental treatment.
