Nitrous oxide sedation (i.e., laughing gas) is administered through a tube that is placed over your nose. As you breathe normally through the nose piece, the blend of nitrous oxide and oxygen will induce a euphoric feeling. Most patients prefer this method because it is only in effect during the time that it is needed.
Oral sedation, as the name implies, is medicine given orally prior to your visit to our office. This method allows the patient to partially sedated by the time you arrive for your appointment. Once you are comfortably settled in, we will begin your procedure.
