It is completely reversible, meaning in most cases, you can drive home afterward. Laughing gas sedation is a mild relaxant, typically given for dental hygiene appointments or cosmetic dentistry.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves taking a pill to achieve relaxation during treatment. You will take medicine about an hour before your treatment, and together with laughing gas, you will feel more relaxed. Patients are very lightly sedated and more awake than with IV Sedation. We reserve this for limited use.
