Oral Sedation: Oral sedation is usually administered to patients through a pill. During treatment, patients will feel relaxed and may even feel like they are in a sleep like state. Under the care of an experienced dentist, oral sedation is a safe solution to dental anxiety.It is important for patients to organize a ride home after their treatment because it takes a few hours for this form of sedation dentistry to wear off.

Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide is commonly known as “laughing gas.” Nitrous oxide helps patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental treatment. Nitrous oxide is administered through a small mask, which is only effective when the mask is on. Once the mask is removed, the effects of nitrous oxide diminish. Patients are able to drive themselves home after treatment.
