Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting form of sedation that we administer in-office once you get comfortable in the treatment chair. We’ll place a small nose mask onto your face that will allow you to breathe in the odorless, colorless gas. Within less than a minute, you’ll feel a wave of relaxation and calm come over your body. As soon as we’re done with your treatment, we’ll remove the mask and the effects will quickly wear off, allowing you to go on with your day.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a great option for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety. Before your appointment, we’ll prescribe a pill for you to take that will help you feel at-ease by the time you visit our office. Because the effects don’t wear off for several hours, you’ll need to be prepared by having a trusted friend or family member drop you off and pick you up from your appointment.
