Nitrous oxide (more commonly known as “laughing gas”) is a mild and very safe sedative that our team can administer through a nasal mask throughout your appointment. After a few minutes of breathing it in, patients should start to feel calmer, allowing our team to proceed with treatment. The biggest benefit of this sedation option is that the effects of nitrous oxide wear off just as quickly as they begin. This eliminates the need for an escort and allows patients of all ages to return to school/work right away.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation comes in pill form, and our team will provide you with a prescription and instructions for when to take the medication before your scheduled appointment. Once the effects have begun, patients should enter a deep state of relaxation; some may not even remember their procedure once it’s finished. When using oral conscious sedation, patients will need to arrange for a friend or family member to accompany them to and from our office for their own safety.
