Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

When you arrange to have oral conscious sedation performed at your next dental visit, you will be given some medication. You need to take the medication at a certain time, then have someone you trust drive you to our dental office. You will already start feeling the effects by the time you arrive, and eventually you’ll be in a state where you’re still conscious and able to respond to requests yet still completely at ease. Oral conscious sedation often has amnesiac effects, meaning you won’t remember what actually happened during your visit. The medication most likely will not have worn off by the time the treatment is complete, so you will need someone else to escort you home and keep an eye on you for about 12 hours.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a staple of dental offices across the country, offering a safe way to help both children and adults relax during their visits. The nitrous oxide will be mixed with oxygen before you breathe it in through a mask. It puts you in a highly content state, and it even gives some patients the giggles (hence the nickname “laughing gas”). We can decrease or increase the dosage right away if we need to. The effects of the gas wear off in just a few minutes, so it won’t disrupt the rest of your day; you can just drive back to work or school on your own.
