We offer two sedation options available to you to help you feel more comfortable during your dental appointment:
- Oral conscious sedation – oral conscious sedation or moderate sedation is administered by pill one hour prior to your appointment. We ask that you have someone drive you to and from your appointment if you are using oral sedation.
- Nitrous oxide – nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” is a safe, effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and breathed in throughout your treatment. It helps you feel relaxed and pain free but will not cause you to go to sleep. It is easily adjustable and dissipates in minutes at the end of your appointment.
Your safety is our top priority. Prior to issuing any form of sedation or other medication to you (or anyone you are responsible for), we will ask you some questions about current prescriptions and supplements, any medication allergies or reactions you have had to sedatives or pain relievers.
