Oral Conscious Sedation

When needles cause you to become anxious, and nitrous oxide isn’t enough to settle your nerves, oral conscious sedation dentistry can help. As a pill medication that is to be taken at least one hour before your appointment, the medicine will help to calm any fears you might have as well as minimize your apprehension about undergoing treatment. With oral conscious sedation, you will need someone to escort you to and from your appointment, as it takes time for the effects to wear off.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Considered the mildest form of dental sedation available, nitrous oxide is safe to use on most patients, as it only requires breathing in a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. With effects that come on quickly and dissipate just as fast, it does not require that you have anyone bring you or take you home from your appointment. Instead, you’ll be able to undergo treatment with ease and still drive yourself home after your visit is complete.
