Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

The most mild form of sedation available, nitrous oxide, is designed to put patients into a deep state of relaxation. The sedative is administered through a nasal mask that is worn throughout treatment. During your appointment, you can tell us if you’re feeling comfortable and whether you need more sedatives at any time. Once treatment is complete, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities as the effects of sedation fade away as soon as they appear.

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Unlike nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation is taken in pill form several hours before your appointment begins. Once it’s time for your treatment, you should feel incredibly relaxed. Remember that no sedation dentistry is meant to put patients completely to sleep. However, oral conscious sedation is stronger than nitrous oxide and ideal for those with moderate levels of anxiety or fear. Because of the higher strength, you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment.

Question About Sedation Dentistry?

IV Dental Sedation

The strongest form of sedation dentistry available, IV sedation, is intended for patients with severe levels of anxiety or fear. As implied in the name, this sedative is administered directly into the bloodstream and allows on-the-fly adjustments based on your comfort. While offering the deepest relaxation effects, it still keeps people conscious so that adjustments can be made to your comfort. Like oral conscious sedation, a friend or family member must drive you to your appointment and pick you up. Set aside at least 12 hours to recover before returning to normal activities.
