Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
When you choose oral conscious sedation, we’ll give you sedative medication before your procedure begins. You’ll feel groggy and might even drift off, but you won’t be unconscious; we’ll be able to wake you up easily with a gentle nudge. That said, you’ll be in such a relaxed state that you likely won’t even remember your treatment. The medication takes a while to wear off, so get a friend or family member to agree to drive you to and from your dental visit.
Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation
Nitrous oxide can be mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a mask or nosepiece. It only takes about three to five minutes for the effects to kick in, during which you’ll be in a state of euphoria where the sights and sounds of the dental office will not bother you. After your treatment, we’ll give you pure oxygen to help you flush out any remaining nitrous oxide. In just a few minutes, you’ll be alert enough to drive yourself home or back to work.
IV Sedation Dentistry
IV sedation is the deepest form of conscious sedation available in dentistry. The sedative medications are administered directly to your bloodstream, so you’ll feel the effects quickly. We can change the level of sedation at any time to help you remain comfortable throughout your visit. This type of dental sedation is often the best choice for anyone who is severely afraid or anxious about visiting the dentist, or anyone who’s planning on having a lengthy dental procedure done.
