Types of Sedation Dentistry

We offer three types of sedation to meet your needs and comfort level.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, offers a light level of sedation. You inhale the gas through a nosepiece, feeling an immediate full-body relaxation. You’ll still be awake and conscious throughout your procedure, and our team will monitor and adjust your level of gas to meet your comfort level. Once treatment is complete, you’ll be back to normal within a few minutes and able to drive yourself home.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation comes in the form of a pill and provides a mild to moderate level of sedation depending on the prescribed dosage. You’ll take the medication before your appointment, and feel calm and drowsy by the time we start treatment. You’ll still be partially conscious throughout the procedure, but will feel blurry and you may even fall asleep. You may not remember the procedure afterward and will need someone to drive you home.

IV Sedation

IV sedation provides the deepest form of relaxation, allowing you to be completely unconscious for the whole procedure. You won’t feel or remember anything. IV sedation will be closely monitored by an experienced and trained professional, ensuring you’ll stay safely asleep and comfortable. With this more powerful form of sedation, you’ll need someone to safely drive you home.
