90 million people in the U.S. do not see a dentist because of fear. More than a million people have conquered that fear with the safe and effective treatment called oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation makes it possible for patients with dental to have needed dental treatment done to restore their mouth to optimal health.
After Dr. Wolf or Dr. Owen carefully reviews your medical history, he chooses an appropriate medication and level of sedation to meet your needs. You will take one pill the night before and one pill before arriving at the office on the day of your treatment. You may also need additional medication depending on the type of procedures performed and the duration of the appointment. The best part is that, due to the amnesic properties of the medications, you will have little-to-no memory of your time in the dental chair by the next day.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Some dental anxieties are milder than others. If you only need a little bit of help staying calm during your appointment, we can administer nitrous oxide sedation during your next visit. Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can put you in a state of euphoria throughout the course of your treatment. Unlike oral sedation, nitrous oxide sedation wears off quickly. After the treatment ends, you’ll only have to wait a few minutes to recover to the point where you’ll be able to drive home by yourself.
