Oral Conscious Dental Sedation
For patients who experience mild to severe dental phobia, Dr. Caballeros can prescribe them a pill to take at home on the day of their appointment. This will ensure that they are completely sedated by the time they sit in the treatment chair. While under, a patient will remain awake and alert, but time will seem to go by very quickly, and they’ll likely have little or no memory of their visit afterward—basically, the entire appointment will seem like a dream!
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide, sometimes also known as “laughing gas” or “moon gas,” is a safe and gentle form of sedation that can help patients of all ages put their lingering dental nerves to rest. Mixed with oxygen, the colorless, odorless gas is inhaled through a small mask placed on the nose, helping a patient feel more serene and calm while in the chair. When the appointment is over and the mask is removed, the effects wear off almost instantly, meaning a patient can instantly resume their normal day without interruption.
