It depends on the sedation used, and there are a few options. If you have questions about which is best for you, all you need to do is ask.
  • Oral Sedation: This involves taking a pill an hour or so before the procedure to induce a euphoric, anxiety-free state. Our office requests that you have a ride to and from your procedure if you elect for this option, for safety reasons. The pill wears off within a few hours.
  • Nitrous Oxide Sedation: This process uses anesthetic gas as a sedative, and it allows patients to return to normal within a few minutes, making it easy for those who plan to drive to and from a procedure themselves.
