Choose From Two Kinds of Dental Sedation

Every dental situation is different, so we offer two kinds of sedation. Laughing gas provides a light level of relaxation to take the edge off, while an oral sedative is appropriate when you need to be more deeply relaxed. Both are completely safe, and neither one involves a needle.

Our two methods are:

  • Inhaled Sedation – Also called laughing gas, you receive this through a small mask worn over your nose. It takes effect almost immediately and wears off quickly too. With no lingering grogginess, you’ll be able to drive yourself home. Even young children can receive laughing gas.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – For a deeper level of relaxation, you’ll take a prescription pill about an hour before your appointment. You’ll arrive relaxed and stay that way throughout your treatment. You’ll be able to respond to questions and other communication, but you’ll be less aware of your surroundings. You may not remember much about your procedure when it’s over. Since you’ll be groggy for a while, you’ll need to arrange transportation.
