Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Administered via a nasal mask that is worn during treatment, nitrous oxide causes you to feel fully relaxed and without stress. The mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen is inhaled and generates effects within minutes. As the mildest form of sedation, it is safe and highly effective, and it allows you to resume normal activity immediately following your appointment. Once the gas is turned off and the mask is removed, you will notice the effects dissipating quickly, leaving you feeling normal and ready to go after your visit.

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Our team will provide a prescribed pill medication, which you will take before your appointment. Because it is likely to make you feel as if you’re falling asleep, you will need to have someone escort you to and from the dentist’s office. Throughout treatment, though, you will remain at ease but cognizant of your surroundings and capable of responding to our dental cues. After your visit, a friend or family member should take you home so that you can rest and allow the effects to dissipate.
