Oral Conscious Dental Sedation
If you have a particularly bad case of dental phobia, or if you require a more invasive procedure, Dr. Shwarts can prescribe you a pill to take at home on the day of your appointment. By the time you reach our dental office, you should already feel completely relaxed from head to toe. In the chair, you’ll remain awake and be able to respond to basic commands, but many patients end up falling asleep! Due to the strength of OCS, you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you to and from our dental office, and after your appointment, you should feel completely normal by the next morning at the latest.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide is ideal for patients who just need a little help to “take the edge off” of their dental nerves. The odorless gas is administered through a small nasal mask, and within a few minutes, a patient will begin to feel warm, happy, and slightly numb all over. The mask remains on for the entire appointment, and once it’s removed, the gas’ effects wear off almost instantly, meaning a patient can resume their day without any lasting drowsiness.
