Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

For many patients, oral conscious sedation is like something from a dream. Dr. Fana can prescribe you a pill to take before your appointment that will help all of your dental nerves seemingly disappear. He typically recommends this approach for patients with mild to severe dental phobia or those who need an extensive procedure. Under this form of sedation, a patient will become deeply relaxed both mentally and physically. They’ll remain awake while in the chair, but time will seem to fly by very quickly, and they’ll likely have little to no memory of their visit afterward.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Dentists have trusted nitrous oxide to soothe nervous patients for more than 100 years, and the reason it’s still used today is simple: it works! A patient simply breathes in the odorless gas through a nasal mask, and within minutes, all tension will leave their body. The mask stays on for the entire appointment, and once it’s removed, the gas’ effects wear off almost instantly. This means a patient can instantly resume their day without delay.
