Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Whether taken as a pill or liquid, this medication can produce a mild level of sedation to soothe the jitters and reduce anxiety. If necessary, one dose can be taken the night before the dental visit, and another can be taken one hour before the procedure.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

When this gas is inhaled through a soft nasal mask in the dental office, a more immediate but gentle sedative effect can be achieved. Often referred to as laughing gas, this sedative can be completely reversed at the end of the procedure when the nitrous oxide is replaced by oxygen only.

IV Dental Sedation

Extreme anxiety can be quelled and a deeper level of sedation can be achieved with the use of IV sedation. When sedative medications are delivered directly into the bloodstream, you will remain conscious and awake, although you will barely notice the dental work that is being performed during your visit.
