Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

When you have more moderate levels of anxiety or nervousness that cannot be managed through nitrous oxide alone, oral conscious sedation is the perfect solution. This sedative is taken through a pill several hours before treatment, giving it plenty of time to make you feel relaxed and ready for care. While this sedative does not put you to sleep entirely, you may feel the urge to due to its strong effects. Keep in mind that you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from the dental office for your own safety.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

For those with more mild cases of dental anxiety or nervousness, nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) can help put you at ease quickly and effectively. By gently breathing in the gaseous sedation through a nasal mask, you’ll start to feel calm and relaxed prior to Dr. Pitarra beginning your treatment. One of the benefits of nitrous oxide is that it only takes a few minutes for the sedative’s effects to wear off, allowing you to continue your day without interruption.
