LAUGHING GAS (nitrous oxide) – We can use this for most, but not all procedures. You can drive home. You can return to work.
“SLEEPY MEDICINE” (oral sedation) – We will give you a cocktail of medications (pills) an hour and half before your scheduled procedure. You will be very relaxed and drift in and out of sleep during the procedure. You will still be able to communicate and cooperate with us as we need you. You will remember very little of the procedure. You cannot drive home. You cannot return to work.
IV Sedation – An anesthesiologist will come to the office to sedate you intravenously. You will be “out” for the procedure. You cannot drive home. You cannot return to work.
