Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that is safe for patients of all ages to undergo. Also known as “laughing gas,” it will be administered through a mask that fits comfortably over the nose throughout the procedure. Within minutes of breathing in the nitrous oxide, patients should begin to feel more comfortable and content while remaining fully awake. The amount of gas you’re receiving can be altered to create the optimal results, and the effects wear off very quickly after the mask is removed, which means any downtime following your care is kept to a minimum.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a more moderate sedative that comes in the form of prescribed medication. We’ll provide with you instructions regarding when to take the medication before your first appointment. Patients will need a trusted escort to bring them both to and from our Edmond location. Once the effects take hold, you should become deeply relaxed; while you’ll still be awake during treatment, it’s likely that you won’t remember much about the procedure once it’s completed.
