Nitrous sedation is commonly referred to as ‘laughing gas’. Nitrous sedation is given through a face mask and is effective within minutes. One advantage to nitrous sedation is that it will wear off within 3-5 minutes after removing the mask. This will allow you to be able to drive home afterwards and not have to bring along a driver.
Oral sedation is sedation in pill form. Your dentist will have you take the sedation pills and within minutes the sedation will go into effect. The oral sedation lasts for several hours and may take some time to completely wear off. With oral sedation, you would want to bring a driver to assist you home.
Oral and nitrous sedation both help you feel deeply relaxed and completely at ease. However, you can be awake during the dental visit. Under sedation, you can respond to your dentist if needed but you will not be bothered by surrounding sounds and smells. You may fall asleep throughout the session and remember only a few moments or nothing from the visit.

Being able to feel completely relaxed and at ease in the dentist chair is something many have longed for and have finally found through sedation dentistry.
