Oral Conscious Sedation

To many patients, oral conscious sedation sounds too good to be true. We simply give a patient medication to take at home on the day of their visit, so that by the time they arrive at our office, they are already deeply sedated. A patient will remain awake but feel extremely calm, and the entire appointment will seem to fly by very quickly. Due to the strength of OCS, it’s required that a friend or family member drive a patient to and from our office.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Perfect for children and adults who need a little help staying comfortable during regular checkups and cleanings, nitrous oxide sedation has been used by dentists for over 100 years because it’s safe, reliable, and effective. The gas is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small nasal mask throughout the appointment, which creates feelings of happiness, warmth, and tranquility. It’s fast-acting, but once we’re done and take the mask off, a patient will feel normal within minutes and be able to resume their regular day.
