Your dentist can offer two types of sedation: nitrous oxide and oral medications. Nitrous oxide, which is also sometimes called laughing gas, is inhaled though a mask placed over your nose. Your dentist can adjust the level of sedation according to your needs, and it wears off quickly, so you can drive after your appointment. Oral medications are taken before your visit so you are comfortable during the procedure. You will need someone to drive you home after your visit. Dental sedation is available for both general and cosmetic dentistry procedures, and can be used any time you need dental care.
