Oral Conscious Dental Sedation
If a patient experiences a lot of anxiety when visiting the dentist or needs to undergo invasive procedures, Dr. Voller may choose to use oral conscious sedation. For this, he will prescribe them medication to take on the day of their procedure, most likely in pill form. On the day of their visit, the patient will take the medication at home so that by the time they reach the dental office, they will be completely relaxed mentally and physically. They will still be conscious and able to follow the doctor’s instructions, but they will not feel any pain and time will fly by quickly.
Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation
Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a form of sedation best used for people who are only slightly nervous about going to the dentist. It is mostly used for regular hygiene checkups. A mask is placed over the nose, and the patient only needs to breathe normally. After about a minute, the gas will take effect, giving them a warm, relaxing sensation. Many people say it feels like they are floating. After the procedure is finished, the mask is removed, and a patient should feel normal within a minute.
