Many dentists advertise sedation dentistry because they offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and/or oral sedation (like Valium or Halcyon). However, these common sedation methods do not prove effective for every patient. If you’ve tried nitrous oxide and oral sedation and you were unhappy with the results, you have another option – and not hospital dentistry. This third in-office sedation option will allow you to go into a deeper state of relaxation, yet you won’t be unconscious as you would with general sedation.
