Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative pill before a dental procedure to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable. The level of sedation can be adjusted to the patient's needs, and the effects can last for several hours. Patients remain conscious and able to respond to verbal commands during the procedure but may not remember the experience afterward. This is typically recommended for people with severe dental anxiety or those who require more involved procedures.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Have you heard of “laughing gas”? If so, then you’re already familiar with nitrous oxide! Perfect for children or those who need a little help at their routine dental appointments, this odorless gas is inhaled through a small nasal mask. Within a few moments, it creates feelings of warmth and euphoria while offering a slight analgesic effect. This will last throughout the appointment, and once the mask is removed, the patient should feel completely normal without any lingering drowsiness.
