There are a few different types of dental sedation that can be used for patients with special needs. The type of sedation that is right for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Some common types of dental sedation include:

-Oral Sedation: Oral sedation is taken in pill form prior to your appointment. It works to relax the body and mind, making it a great option for patients who experience anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist.

-Nitrous Oxide Sedation: Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is inhaled through a small mask during your appointment. It works quickly to relaxed the body and mind, and it wears off just as quickly once the mask is removed.

-IV Sedation: IV sedation is administered through a small intravenous (IV) line in the arm. It works quickly to relax the body and mind, and it can be adjusted throughout your appointment to ensure you remain comfortable.
