At Olney Dental, we provide minimal sedation (nitrous oxide) and moderate sedation options. Not all anesthetics are alike. Their side effects differ.
Minimal Sedation: The use of nitrous oxide allows the patient to remain fully awake, but relaxed during the dental procedure. The benefit of minimal sedation is that you can drive home immediately following the procedure.
Moderate Sedation: Moderate sedation, unlike minimal sedation, will leave you groggy and leave you with little to no memory of the procedure.
If you have any questions, don't worry. We will sit down with you when you come in and thoroughly explain your anesthetic options and how each method will affect you. That way you will be able to make a well-informed decision.
