For conscious dental sedation, we’ll give you a safe oral sedative to take before your dental procedure. You’ll feel completely relaxed during the procedure and will likely not remember much about it afterward. But you will be able to hear our dentist and staff and respond to them while they work. Dr. John Miller has completed conscious sedation training with the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.
For a lighter level of sedation, you can opt to receive laughing gas instead. It’s administered through a small mask you wear over your nose. It takes effect within minutes and wears off quickly too. You’ll even be able to drive yourself home.
