Oral sedation is the use of a pill to help with patient anxiety. The medication most commonly used is a benzodiazapene. It is important for your doctor to evaluate you to determine whether you are a good candidate for any type of sedation. It is also important to listen to your doctors specific instructions and other medications to avoid taking while under oral sedation.
We offer oral sedation for all qualifying patients here at Emerald Coast Periodontics.
Nitros Oxide Sedation
Nitrous Oxide has been used for decades as a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety in dental patients. Nitrous oxide, also known as "laughing gas", is an inhalant that is absorbed in the lungs. Most patients can safely use nitrous oxide and you should inquire with your doctor about its potential for reducing your anxiety.
