Choose Your Choice of Sedation

We offer two different types of sedation so that you have plenty of choices depending on your level of anxiety:

  • Inhaled Sedation – (Nitrous Oxide, or Laughing Gas) This gentle sedative provides a slight euphoric effect to relax and calm you.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – Before your appointment, you’ll take a small FDA-approved pill that will calm your nerves and make you feel slightly groggy.
