Sedation Dentistry with Oral Sedatives or Nitrous Oxide
Oral sedatives and nitrous oxide (otherwise known as “laughing gas”) are milder forms of sedation for less invasive procedures. You will retain some awareness during these methods. An oral sedative is a pill that desensitizes you from pain and may cause you to feel drowsy and relaxed.
Nitrous oxide, which has been in medical use for more than 150 years, is administered through a face mask. It causes the patient to feel calmer, more relaxed, and numbs the pain.
