Oral sedation allows Dr. Nugent to relieve a patient’s anxiety and fear with small pills that are taken in the office prior to the dental procedure. This sedation method does not require tubes or needles. The procedure does not begin until the patient is comfortable and relaxed. Once the patient is feeling relaxed and sleepy Dr. Nugent will administer Nitrous Oxide further relax the patient. Most patients report they were “sleeping” or in a “dream like state”. Patients have amnesia of the procedure. Dr. Nugent and team carefully monitor the patient’s heart rate, blood oxygen levels, blood pressure, and breathing. With this sedation the patient must have someone to drive them home.
