Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

This type of sedation is preferred amongst patients with more severe dental phobias or those who need treatments that will last a very long time. The sedative comes in the form of a pill, which you’ll take some time before the treatment actually begins. You’ll be so relaxed that you’ll have trouble remembering anything about your appointment later; however, you’ll still be conscious enough to follow our directions and answer any questions we might have.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

When you think of sedation at the dentist’s office, nitrous oxide is probably what you think of immediately. Compared to other types of sedation, nitrous oxide is certainly more convenient; it takes effect very quickly once you start breathing it in, yet it wears off quickly enough that you’ll be able to go on with the rest of your day as you normally would. That said, nitrous oxide is generally more suitable for those with mild to moderate anxieties or dental phobias; patients with particularly severe cases may need to consider other options.
