Types of Dental Sedation

  • Nitrous Oxide: Laughing gas is the most common type of dental sedation. You will be awake and aware of your surroundings, but you will also feel lightheaded and euphoric, possibly causing fits of laughter. The effects wear off as soon as you breathe regular air.

  • Oral Sedation: Oral sedation comes in the form of a prescription pill, which you take shortly before your appointment. You will be awake, but you’ll feel very drowsy. You may have no memory of your visit. The effects of oral sedation wear off a few hours after the procedure.

  • Sedation: Light IV sedation keeps you awake, but you will be intensely relaxed. The effects will take several hours to wear off.

  • General Anesthesia: General anesthesia involves a complete loss of consciousness. You will not be aware of your surroundings or see or hear anything. You will have no memory of your treatment. The sedative will take several hours to wear off.

Hear From Our Patients

Icon of five stars
"On my visit the Dr. understood my fear and even asked if it was ok to let the chair lower, something no one has ever considered before!! He gave me very straight forward options for moving forward and reasonably priced options. Needless to say I’m moving forward with treatment and the use of iv sedation to fix my tooth. Thank you for being so understanding and careful with my concerns."
