Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is administered in the form of a single pill that we’ll have you take before your appointment. That way, when you arrive at our dental office, you’ll already feel at ease and more comfortable than you typically would. Because the effects of the medication can linger, you’ll need to have a trusted friend or family member prepared to drop you off and pick you up from our office.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting, in-office form of dental sedation that we recommend for patients with less severe dental anxiety. We’ll place a small nose mask on your face that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. Within moments, you’ll feel a relaxing wave flow through your body. When your treatment is complete, we’ll have you breathe pure oxygen to help flush the sedation out of your system. You’ll be able to carry on with your day as you normally would once the effects have worn off, which typically takes between five and 10 minutes.
