Nitrous oxide, or better known as laughing gas, in combination with oxygen, is given through a mask by our dentists during the dental procedures to the patients who require it. The patient is still conscious, and yet feels more relaxed and calm, and after the procedure, the patient can also drive home and resume with normal daily activities.
Oral sedation is a medication, likely pills that Dr. Nikou will prescribe for you, to take approximately one hour prior to your dental appointment. Although patients are mostly awake during oral sedation, this is a deeper level of sedation and relaxation. Most people do not remember much of their dental procedure afterwards. With oral moderate sedation, patients are instructed not to eat for a couple of hours prior to their arrival and need to arrange for a ride to and from the dental office by a friend or relative. Most people feel drowsy for the rest of the day after they leave the office and need to take the day off.
