Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation
The mildest form of sedation available, nitrous oxide sedation is a common and relatively simple method for reducing anxiety or fear during dental treatments. This gaseous substance is administered through a nasal mask that is worn throughout treatment. The flow of nitrous oxide is carefully monitored by our team members and can be adjusted as needed to ensure your comfort. Once your treatment is complete, we’ll remove the sedation and the effects will quickly disappear, allowing you to continue your day without interruption.
Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Unlike nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation is administered through a pill that is taken orally. This method offers a much stronger sedative, making it ideal for those with moderate to severe levels of anxiety. However, because of this added strength, you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from the dental office as well as allow a few hours to pass before resuming regular activities.
