Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

As soon as you sit down in the treatment chair and get comfortable, we’ll place a small mask onto your nose that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. Within less than a minute, you’ll feel the effects of the nitrous oxide kick-in. As soon as the full effects take place and you feel at-ease, we’ll begin your treatment. As soon as your procedure is complete, we’ll remove the mask and the effects will quickly wear off, allowing you to go on with your day as you normally would.

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a great option for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety. We’ll prescribe you a single pill to take about an hour before you get to our dental office. That way, by the time you arrive, you’ll already feel more relaxed than you usually would. Because the effects begin before you arrive and won’t wear off until hours after your appointment, you’ll need to plan for a trusted friend or family member to drop you off and pick you up from your visit.
