Oral Conscious Sedation
When you choose to undergo oral conscious sedation for any given dental treatment, you’ll be given a special pill to take ahead of time. Typically, you’ll consume the pill the night before your visit or several hours beforehand depending on what time the procedure is scheduled for. Under the effects of sedation, time will seem to pass very quickly, and you won’t care about what is going on around you. Make sure to arrange for someone else to drive you home afterwards.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
If you only have a mild case of dental anxiety or phobia, nitrous oxide is a quick yet effective solution. At the beginning of your treatment, a special mask will be placed over your nose so that you can breathe in the sedative. You won’t be unconscious, but you’ll be in a highly relaxed state. The sedation levels can be adjusted as necessary throughout your visit. The effects will wear off quickly afterwards so that you can drive yourself home or back to work.
