Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
You’ve probably heard of using nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, as a sedative at the dentist’s office before. It doesn’t actually make you laugh, but it does put you in a very content, highly relaxed state, making it extremely easy to stay comfortable during your visit. We’ll keep a close eye on you so that we can adjust your sedation level if we need to. After the treatment, the effects of nitrous oxide will go away quickly, so you can get back to the rest of your day without worrying about side effects.
Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
We can give you oral medication to put your body in a relaxed and rested state during your dental treatment. The medication must be taken ahead of time, usually in the hours before the appointment itself. Time will seem to pass by very quickly while you’re under the effects of oral conscious sedation, and you likely won’t have any memories of the visit itself. You’ll need to ask a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment.
