The Comfortable Way to Eliminate Dental Anxiety
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a simple and effective way to reduce your level of consciousness and help you completely relax.
This type of sedation dentistry uses a pill-based sedative similar to Valium, such as Halcion or Ativan. You’ll take the pill 2 hours before your procedure, based on the recommendation of your dentist.
The result is a relaxed, dream-like state — some patients even fall asleep or forget the procedure entirely.
Also referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide sedation is inhaled via a small and comfortable face mask, producing a giddy sensation.
The effects of this type of sedation are quickly reversed. As soon as you stop breathing in the nitrous oxide, you’ll return to a normal state.
This type of sedation is commonly used on young people or those who have mild anxiety about being in the dentist chair.
Questions? We can help
What does conscious sedation feel like?
Most of our patients report feeling drowsy and relaxed. You might also feel a slight tingling sensation throughout your body, especially in your arms, legs, hands, and feet.
Can you talk during conscious sedation?
Most patients are able to speak and respond to verbal cues throughout the treatment. However, it’s possible you won’t remember the procedure at all!
Does nitrous oxide put you to sleep?
Nitrous is not meant to put you to sleep, however, some of our patients often feel so relaxed that they drift off to a light slumber. Nitrous oxide gas is inhaled through a comfortable mask you wear over your nose and will make you feel very calm but coherent.
Can I drive after nitrous oxide?
Yes. Unlike conscious sedation, you are perfectly safe to drive after using nitrous oxide. The gas will start working almost immediately once you begin inhaling it. It wears off just as fast!
