What happens during the procedure for Sedation (Sleep) Dentistry?
Prior to receiving any form of sedation, we will discuss your options with you. You are in total control over when you want sedation and what type you’d prefer. We offer both oral sedation as well as nitrous oxide. We can discuss both types and provide you with information on what to expect. It is important that you have someone else drive you to and from your appointments when sedation is being administered. We may recommend full sedation if you have complicated oral surgery or a more invasive procedure in the near future.
