Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

With oral conscious sedation, we simply prescribe a patient medication to take at home on the day of their appointment, and that way, by the time they actually reach our dental office and sit in the dental chair, they are already completely relaxed from head to toe. Most patients stay awake and are able to respond to basic commands, but many end up dozing off! This method is quite potent, so we require that a friend or family member drive the patient to and from our dental office as well as spent a little time with them afterward until the sedative has worn off (which usually happens by that evening or the next morning).

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Perfect for children and adults who need just a little help during their dental appointments, nitrous oxide has been used for over a century to gently soothe nervous dental patients. The gas is inhaled through a small nasal mask during a procedure, giving a patient a light, happy, and slightly numb feeling all over. When the appointment is over and the mask is removed, the effects go away almost instantly, meaning a patient can resume their day without any lasting drowsiness.
