Oral Conscious Sedation

For patients experiencing moderate to severe dental anxiety, and who have a trusted companion to accompany them to and from appointments, we suggest Oral Conscious Sedation. This involves the prescription of anti-anxiety medications from the benzodiazepine family. While under oral conscious sedation, patients typically feel very drowsy and oblivious. Throughout the sedation process, the patient’s blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen levels are carefully monitored using a pulse oximeter. With proper dosage and monitoring, the risks involved are minimal.

Inhalation Sedation (“Laughing Gas”)

Nitrous Oxide (N2O) is combined with Oxygen (O2) at a safe level and inhaled through the nose. Nitrous oxide can reduce pain, produce pleasant feelings, and sometimes create a slight numbing sensation. Patients often begin to feel its effects after breathing the gas for as little as two to five minutes. Some people experience mild lightheadedness. Others get the giggles, giving nitrous oxide its nickname. The effects of the gas only last a short time and wear off quickly once its administration is discontinued. This provides for the patient an increased level of comfort and a decreased level of anxiety. Laughing gas is great for those patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety, and because it has no long term side effects patients can drive to and from their appointment.
