Levels of Sedation

Local Anesthetic

Common Procedures: Fillings and Root Canals

This is a sedation technique that numbs the area of the mouth the dentist will be working on. It usually wears off later the same day.

Oral Sedation

Common Procedures: Wisdom Tooth Extraction

This is a pill taken about an hour prior to the appointment that makes the patient drowsy and relaxed.

Nitrous Oxide

Common Procedures: Minor Surgical Procedures

Nitrous oxide provides minimal sedation that allows the patient to relax, but keeps them awake to communicate with the dentist. Also known as laughing gas, this sedation wears off quickly.

IV Sedation

Common Procedures: Full Mouth Reconstruction

This is a quick sedation method that is administered intravenously. This form of sedation gives the dentist more control over the level of sedation. Most patient fall asleep with this type of sedation and do not remember anything about the appointment.
