What You Can Expect when Receiving Sedation
Administering oral sedation accompanied by nitrous oxide is often a simple process. Patients that choose this option receive oral medication before their procedure. They are instructed to take the medication at least one hour before their appointment and to have assistance getting to and from our practice. This is to ensure the safety of our patients and protect them before and after undergoing sedation-assisted treatment.
Once patients arrive at their appointment, they typically already feel relaxed from the oral medication and ready for their procedure. Those that require additional anxiety relief receive nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. This inhalant is safely administered through a mask and provides a euphoric effect that typically calms patients.
Benefits of a Worry Free Treatment Option
Our sedation options help eliminate pre-operative anxiety before the procedure and ease discomfort during actual treatment. New and existing patients receiving sedation typically feel more at ease afterward as they have little or no memory of the actual procedure.
