Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

If you suffer from moderate to severe dental anxiety or possess a sensitive gag reflex, we can recommend oral conscious sedation to create a more calming experience. Taking the prescribed pill we offer, you will fall into a deeper state of relaxation during your procedure, allowing for complete comfort and ease. You will need to have someone take and pick you up from your appointment, as effects do take several hours to wear off.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Commonly referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is the most popular option of sedation and poses no lasting effects once turned off. Dr. Lam will recommend this solution if you have mild dental anxiety. The process is easy, and effects occur quickly. Once you are more relaxed, we’ll complete your treatment before removing the mask and shutting off the gas. Within minutes, you’ll begin to feel like yourself again.
