Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a great option for patients who feel anxious leading up to their visits and have more moderate fear, anxiety, or overstimulation. Before your appointment, we’ll prescribe you a pill to take that will help you feel more at-ease by the time you reach our office. Because the effects of oral sedation linger, you’ll need to be prepared by having a trusted friend or family member drop you off and pick you up from your appointment.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation can be administered in-office, once you’ve settled in the treatment chair. This form of sedation kicks-in within a minute or two, and it’s a great option for patients who have a sensitive gag reflex, mild anxiety or fear, or are overstimulated by the sights and sounds of the office. It’s administered through a small nose mask that allows you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. After the treatment is finished, we’ll remove the mask and sit with you while the effects quickly dissipate.
