Oral Conscious Sedation

Before your appointment with Dr. Malley, you’ll be given a pill along with some instructions. Normally, you’ll take the pill about an hour before your treatment begins. Once it takes effect, you’ll be in an extremely relaxed state; you won’t be unconscious, but you also won’t be bothered by what’s going on around you. After your dental work is complete, you’ll need a trusted friend or family member to drive you home so that you can rest until the effects of the medication wear off.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a gaseous substance that you can inhale through a small nasal mask during your treatment. It’ll put you in a state of euphoria and help you stay comfortable as we work on your teeth. We can adjust your comfort level as needed throughout the process. After the mask has been removed, it will only take a few minutes for you to return to normal, so you’ll be able to go back to your regular activities without interruption.
