Oral Conscious Sedation

With oral conscious sedation, our dental team will prescribe a small pill that you will need to take before your appointment. Often recommended for patients who have moderate dental anxiety or who are preparing for multiple procedures, oral conscious sedation can be a reliable option that allows us to provide the dental treatment needed while you remain calm and comfortable throughout your visit. Although it does take time for the effects to wear off, it is worth it if it allows you to undergo the dental care needed to improve your oral health and smile.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Commonly used on patients with mild dental anxiety, nitrous oxide leaves no lasting effects and is easily administered via a nasal mask. Once put into place, we will turn on the gas mixture to help keep you calm throughout your visit. Nitrous oxide can help to relax you and put you into a state of euphoria so that you feel nothing during treatment but remain fully cognizant to respond to cues by our dental team. When finished, you’ll immediately begin to feel normal again, allowing you to return to work or home after your appointment.
