-Compared to oral sedation or nitrous oxide, you'll reach a deeper level of sedation.
-If you suffer from a heavy gag reflex, IV sedation greatly reduces it.
-IV sedation takes effect rather quickly and can be customized to fit your individual needs.
-Unlike deep sedation or general anaesthesia, you'll remain conscious during your procedure and still be able to cooperate with instructions.
Prior to your treatment, you'll receive medication through an intravenous line. This will place you in a calm, relaxed state. Even though you'll be sedated, you'll still retain all verbal and physical response capabilities. You'll maintain this relaxed state while the dental team completes your treatment.
- Someone should take you home. You should not drive.

- Avoid hazardous or strenuous activities. It's best not to eat a heavy meal immediately following your procedure.
- Avoid driving a motor vehicle for the rest of the day.

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax.
Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have.
Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
