What are Your Options?

With a few different types of sedation dentistry, our doctors can determine which one will work best for you. The goal is to develop a personalized treatment plan while ensuring you’re relaxed every step of the way.

The following types of sedation we offer are:

  • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
  • Oral sedation
  • IV sedation

Before Sedation

If you’re scheduled to receive sedation, please avoid eating or drinking anything at least six hours before the procedure. You may take any necessary medications with a sip of water. A responsible adult should take you to and from the appointment, as patients are advised not to drive 24 hours after taking sedation.

Make sure to wear loose and comfortable clothing on the day of your appointment. While you’re sedated, our staff will monitor your vital signs during the procedure.

After Sedation

If you’ve received sedation, you should avoid operating any hazardous devices or doing any heavy lifting for 24 hours. A responsible adult should always be with you until the effects of the sedation have completely worn off. It’s also crucial to begin hydrating and eating nutritional foods as soon as possible after sedation. Avoid sedatives and stimulants, including alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine, for 24 hours after the appointment.
