- Nitrous Oxide is commonly referred to as ‘laughing gas.’ Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask that slowly releases the gas throughout your treatment. Once the mask is removed, the effects of nitrous oxide diminish. During treatment, patients will feel relaxed but will remain responsive during the procedure.
- Oral Conscious Sedation is administered through a pill that patients take before their treatment. Patients will feel relaxed and a sense of calm during their treatment. Patients will need to coordinate a ride to and from their appointment.
