Oral Conscious Sedation
Safe and effective, oral conscious sedation dentistry dramatically reduces the body’s natural tendency to tense muscles while stressed, helping you to feel at ease while you’re here with us. You simply take a little pill prior to treatment, leaving you completely relaxed and extremely comfortable. Dental anesthetics are more effective while the body is relaxed, practically eliminating any concerns about discomfort during treatment.
Our team monitors you constantly and you are never left alone. You will still be awake enough to respond to the doctor, but will essentially sleep through the entire appointment.
Because oral conscious sedation is so effective, you must have someone drive you to and from your appointment. When your appointment is over, you should relax and allow the drug to wear off. You should not drive until the next day.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
We also offer nitrous oxide to help you relax. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is safe and quickly effective. When you are seated in the treatment room, we will administer the nitrous oxide gas through a mask over your nose. Within a few seconds, you will begin to feel very comfortable. When the procedure is completed, we will remove the mask and you will begin to feel completely normal within seconds. The effects of the gas wear off almost immediately, so you are able to drive yourself and return to normal activities following your appointment.
