Oral Conscious Sedation
If you suffer from moderate to severe dental anxiety, oral conscious sedation may be a great option for you. Before your appointment, we’ll prescribe you one pill to take an hour before you arrive. You’ll need a trusted friend or family member to drive you to and from your treatment because the effects may take time to wear-off. When you get to our office, you’ll feel euphoric and calm, allowing us to quickly complete any dental procedures necessary and send you on your way.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
For patients with less severe dental fear or anxiety, we also offer nitrous oxide sedation. When you arrive at our office and sit in the treatment chair, we’ll apply a small mask over your nose. It will allow you to breathe in the odorless, colorless gas. Within minutes, you’ll slowly begin to feel more relaxed and at-ease. Once the effects fully take place, we’ll complete any treatments, removing the mask afterward. After a few minutes with the mask off, you should feel back to your normal self.
