Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, offers a mild sedation level to take the edge off your anxiety. You'll inhale the gas through a comfortable nosepiece and immediately feel a full-body euphoria. You'll still be fully awake and conscious throughout your procedure and can safely drive yourself home.
Oral sedation offers a mild to moderate level of sedation and comes in the form of a pill. Depending on the dosage and type, you'll experience a calming effect and drowsiness. You'll be partially conscious throughout the procedure, though you may fall asleep and not remember much afterward. You'll need someone to drive you home.
