Oral Conscious Sedation

With oral conscious sedation dentistry, Dr. Steve will provide a prescribed pill that you will take before your appointment. Because the effects can come on quickly, it is recommended that you have someone drive you to and from our dental office. By the time you get comfortable in our chair, you will feel completely at ease. You may even feel somewhat sleepy, but you will not be unconscious. In fact, you will be able to respond to any of our cues but are unlikely to remember much, if anything, from your appointment. You can expect the effects of the sedation to wear off over time, so you will be expected to return home and rest.


Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Considered a milder form of sedation dentistry, nitrous oxide is administered through a nasal mask that is placed over your nose. Once the mixture of gas is turned on, you are instructed to inhale. The effects of the sedation will begin to occur within minutes, causing you to feel somewhat euphoric. You may feel slightly warm but completely comfortable. After we are finished with your procedure, we will turn off the gas and remove the mask. Within minutes, the effects will wear off, and you’ll be free to resume normal activities.
