Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

We can administer nitrous oxide, also called “laughing gas,” through a small mask placed over your nose. You’ll feel its calming effects almost instantly, allowing you to complete your procedure without any stress while remaining conscious. Our team can adjust the dosage of the sedative at any time to achieve your ideal comfort level. Once we’ve finished and removed the mask, the effects should wear off within minutes, and you should be able to continue with your regularly scheduled day. 

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

For patients who need a little extra help alleviating nervousness, Dr. Chougule can prescribe a more potent sedative in the form of a pill that you’ll take at a certain time before your appointment. By the time you’re settled into the treatment chair, you’ll feel so deeply relaxed (yet be awake) that your procedure should be a breeze. The effects of the pill may last for several hours, so you’ll need a ride to and from our dental office.
