What is Sedation?

Dental sedation can relieve stress and help you feel more comfortable during your appointment. Various types of sedation range in strength. The mildest form of sedation is nitrous oxide, administered through a breathing mask. The effects are immediate and will also wear off when the mask is taken off. A deeper level of conscious sedation is offered through oral sedation. This is a pill that is taken before your appointment. It is required to have a driver if using oral conscious sedation.

Lastly, intravenous sedation offers the most profound level of conscious sedation. The sedation will be administered through an IV, and you will be monitored throughout the procedure to ensure no issues. It is recommended to arrange a ride to and from our practice if you are receiving sedation, as you can feel drowsy once the sedation starts to wear off.
