Conscious Sedation (Awake & Aware)
At South Beach Dental, we offer Oral Conscious Sedation and Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) for procedures.
A pill is taken about an hour before your treatment, which will make you feel relaxed and somewhat sleepy. You will, however, remain awake, and will be able to interact with and respond to the dentist. The sedative effects can last for up to four hours. Sometimes you may also be prescribed a pill to take the night before your treatment to help you sleep.
