- Light Oral Sedation
In this type of sedation, a prescription sedative is taken orally an hour before undergoing the procedure. Once the sedative takes effect, the patient will be on the edge of consciousness but still can react and respond to the doctor. The impact of this sedation lasts for few hours allowing the dentist to conduct the treatment in a pain-free and comfortable way.
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation
It is a type of sedation where the dentist uses Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) to make the patient relax during the procedure. Laughing gas is ideal for all ages. Once the gas is mixed with oxygen, it lets the patient feel comfortable. In this type of sedation, the nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask place over in the nose of the patient.
