Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation dentistry involves a patient taking anti-anxiety medication - either at home or at our dental office - ahead of a procedure to help them relax and allow our team to work more quickly. Typically, a patient remains awake with this sedation, and to them, time flows by very quickly, and they may have only fuzzy memories of their visit afterward. Because of the lingering effects, it’s required that a trusted person drive the patient to and from our office on the day of their visit.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is perfect for those who just want to “take the edge off” of their dental anxiety. The odorless gas is breathed in through a small nasal mask and creates feelings of warmth and euphoria within minutes. Even better, these effects wear off quickly after the mask is removed, allowing a patient to get straight back to their day.
