Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. The medication won't allow you to lose consciousness, but it will calm patients while still allowing you to communicate with your dentist. It also tends to lower anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex and make time pass more quickly.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids that need to be prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken orally before coming in for your dental appointment. It leaves you awake and responsive for the procedure, but produces a calming effect to allow you to feel relaxed.
