Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Those with moderate and even severe levels of dental anxiety or fear will find oral conscious sedation to be not only effective, but very easy to use. Administered through a pill that is taken orally before the dental appointment begins, oral conscious sedation puts you into a deep state of relaxation to make dental treatments more comfortable to complete. Due to its strength, it’s important to have a ride to and from the dental office prepared as well as time afterwards for the sedative’s effects to wear off.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Ideal for those with more mild anxiety, nitrous oxide sedation combines nitrous and oxygen to create a calming sedative that is gently inhaled throughout dental treatments. This is done through a nasal mask that is worn over the face, allowing a calming sensation to wash over you in a matter of minutes. Once treatment is complete, we remove the mask and give you a chance to breathe in regular air. Almost immediately, the effects of the sedative dissipate, allowing you to continue your day without interruption.
