  • NO2 – You probably know Nitrous Oxide (NO2) as "laughing gas." NO2 is a sedation method comprising a mask fit over the mouth and nose. The "gas" is inhaled and puts patients in relaxed, meditative states. NO2 is referred to as "laughing gas" because patients report feeling optimistic and giddy after inhaling it.
  • Oral Sedation – If you are going in for a more complex or significant procedure, oral sedation is probably the right choice for you. Patients take an oral sedative in pill form before their procedure. When it sets in, patients are lulled into a deep state of relaxation.

What to Know About Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives encourage patients and make them feel confident in their treatments and procedures, even if they aren't initially looking forward to them. However, you should consider a few things before choosing oral sedation. First, oral sedatives can take hours to wear off, so you must have someone to drive you after your procedure. Further, we recommend oral sedatives for patients who will experience or undergo the following:

  • Major Procedures – Oral sedatives help calm anxiety and ease pain before, during, and after complex treatments.
  • Fear and Anxiety – Do you fear the dentist's office? Oral sedatives will put your mind at ease and relieve minor and chronic dental office anxiety.
  • Fragile or Sensitive Teeth – If your teeth feel pain or discomfort easily, oral sedatives can alleviate and numb your sensitive areas.
