Our Select Sedation Options
We will administer a carefully calibrated dose of medications in pill form, allowing you to enjoy a “twilight” state of consciousness while staying responsive throughout your procedure. With this sedation option, you’ll need a driver to take you home.
Often called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask before treatment. You’ll stay alert and awake but feel relaxed throughout your procedure. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once your mask is removed.
IV General Anesthesia Sedation
Administered intravenously, general anesthesia sedation puts you in a “sleep” state, though you will remain responsive during your procedure. With amnesic effects, many patients who choose general anesthesia sedation may forget parts of their care or the entirety of their treatment. As this general anesthesia option can leave you groggy, you will need someone to drive you home after your visit.
