Postponing a trip to the dentist is never a good idea. If you have a dental issue – whether it’s a simple cavity or the start of something more serious, like gum disease – it will only get worse if left untreated. At Forever Smiles, we understand that some people get extremely nervous when visiting the dentist. In fact, some patients are so frightened of the dental chair that they postpone visits or simply don’t go to the dentist at all. That’s why we offer several forms of conscious sedation methods to our patients.
Who is a Candidate for Conscious Sedation?
We offer several forms of conscious sedation for our patients, from young children to middle-aged individuals to the elderly. If you feel nervous about visiting the dentist, ask us about our conscious sedation techniques and which one might be best for you or a member of your family. There’s no reason to postpone your next trip to the dentist when these sedation methods are available.
Important Information about Sedation Dentistry
Conscious sedation refers to sedation methods that are designed to relax the patient. Each of these techniques allow you to remain fully awake during your trip to the dentist, but feel much more relaxed and at ease.

We offer the following types of conscious sedation methods to our patients:
- Oral Conscious Sedation – The patient is awake and relaxed throughout the visit, but may not have vivid memories of the procedure performed. The patient should have someone drive him/her home after the appointment.
- Nitrous Oxide – “Laughing gas” involves inhaling a small amount of nitrous oxide. Patients usually feel very relaxed and a little giddy, and they are able to drive after the effects wear off.
If you’re nervous about visiting the dentist, there’s no reason to postpone your appointments, thanks to these safe and effective conscious sedation techniques.
