Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Taken via an oral sedative, oral conscious sedation is ideal for those with moderate to severe levels of dental anxiety. About an hour before your appointment begins, you’ll be asked to take the medication and have a friend or family member drive you to the dental office. By the time your appointment starts, you should feel deeply calm and relaxed, yet still capable of speaking with Dr. Heil about your comfort levels. You will need to have someone drive you from the dental office as the sedative wears off.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

A more mild form of sedation, nitrous oxide is a gas-based substance that is gently inhaled over the course of your treatment. Made up of both oxygen and nitrous, this sedative acts quite quickly once administered. As you gently inhale the sedative, you’ll feel warm and very relaxed, but still remain awake to speak to Dr. Heil and his team. After treatment is completed and the mask comes off, you can easily resume your normal activities.
