Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

If you could take a pill that would make your dental nerves go away, would you do it? That’s essentially how oral conscious sedation works! Dr. Sehnert will prescribe you medication to take at home on the day of your appointment, and by the time you arrive at the dental office, you’ll already be in a deep state of relaxation. You’ll know what is going on during your visit, but you just won’t be bothered by it, and time will seem to fly. Because of the strength of OCS, it’s required that a trusted person drive you to and from our dental office.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide can create a tranquil, euphoric sensation after just a few breaths. A patient wears a small nasal mask, breathes in the gas mixed with oxygen, and their anxiety should simply melt away. The mask remains on for the entire appointment, and after we remove it, the patient will feel completely normal after a few minutes, meaning they can get straight back to their day.
