Oral sedation dentistry is a medical procedure involving the administration of sedative drugs via an oral route, generally to facilitate a dental procedure and reduce patients anxiety related to the experience.

Oral sedation is one of the available methods of conscious sedation dentistry, along with inhalation sedation (e.g., nitrous oxide) and conscious intravenous sedation. Treatment may include additional dosing on the night proceeding the procedure, to mitigate anxiety-related insomnia.

The procedure is generally recognized as safe, with the effective dosages being below levels sufficient to impair breathing.


Sedation (nitrous oxide) for dental procedures. Nitrous oxide is a gas, and is commonly known as happy gas or laughing gas. Giving nitrous oxide is a way to help reduce a child’s pain and anxiety during dental treatment. The gas is given through a small nosepiece, and your child will be awake throughout the procedure.


Intravenous (IV) sedation dentistry is used primarily for moderate to severe dental surgical procedures (ie wisdom teeth extraction) and for patients that want to be completely asleep during their dental treatment. The sedation drugs are administered intravenously to the patient. IV sedation dentistry allows you to experience a deeper level of sedation so you do not remember any parts of the procedure.
