Not all anesthetics are alike, and their side effects differ. Nitrous oxide provides minimal sedation, which means you will be fully awake but relaxed. The benefit of minimal sedation is that you can drive home following the procedure. We can also provide moderate sedation options, which make you groggy and leave you with little to no memory of the procedure.
When you come in, we’ll take the time to thoroughly outline your anesthetic options explaining how each works and what side effects you can expect. You’ll be able to make an informed decision that will restore your oral health without causing the pain you fear.
