Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is administered in the form of a pill; our team will provide you with a prescription and detailed instructions for when to take the medication prior to your appointment. Once the effects begin, patients should enter a deep state of calmness and comfort while still remaining conscious enough to respond to commands from our Jacksonville, FL doctors. In fact, some patients may not even remember much about their appointment once it’s completed – they’ll just see beautiful, revitalizing dental improvements in the mirror!
Patients undergoing oral conscious sedation will not be capable of safely driving once they’ve taken the sedative. For this reason, an escort will need to accompany you both to and from our office.
Nitrous oxide is commonly known as “laughing gas,” and it’s the perfect sedative for patients who struggle with mild dental anxiety and would like to feel more comfortable during their procedure. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask that fits over your nose, and within minutes of breathing it in, a relaxed and happy sensation should start to wash over you as our team members get to work.
Nitrous oxide is a safe sedative option for children and adults alike, and once the mask is removed, the effects wear off very quickly. This means that patients can return to work, attend school, and even drive themselves home with no downtime, which is great news for those with busy schedules.
