How Does Sedation Work?

Before providing your sedation, your dentist will explain what you can expect following your session and provide you with any necessary follow-up directions. The type of sedation dentistry you receive could vary based on your level of stress and the procedure itself. Nitrous oxide is distributed via a tiny nose hood and enables you to feel more at ease throughout your visit. For oral-conscious sedative drugs, you will take a pill about an hour ahead of your dental procedure, which gives you a moderate level of comfort. IV sedation is administered through the veins and offers a more thorough level of tranquilizer. Although IV sedation makes it possible for you to stay awake, you will probably feel as though you took a nap throughout your appointment. In the event that you were given oral-conscious or IV sedation, be sure to have a friend or family member take you home after your treatment.

An exceptional dental experience like none other. From the moment I walked in the door until I left, I was treated like gold. The staff is warm and inviting. My hygienist, Jade was personable and put me at ease during my new patient experience. Dr. Ellen helped me create a plan of care based on my goals and what's best best for my oral health. The office is fabulous and it's a boutique experience I cannot recommend enough. This dental studio is like none other and I am so pleased to be a new patient at such a wonderful and caring dental studio. They have added touches and options that set them apart from all others and they have raised the bar on what an amazing patient experience is supposed to feel like. I speak confidently and with experience writing this review as I'm a nurse and they know what it means to make it all about the patient. They have thought of everything and then things that make sense that no other dental office has offered during an office visit. My under eye patches were soothing and my favorite part! I truly feel that everyone has my best interest at heart and insures I feel like a VIP while at Maison Be. They sent me home with a beautiful bag of goodies which made my day. I cannot wait to wear my new sweatshirt and feel apart of the Maison Be family as I am proud to represent such an exceptional dental studio. This women owned business has knocked it out of the park!!!!! I am pleased to support these women as they build a brand unlike none other. Thank you everyone who made my first experience one that I will not forget. I can't wait to go back and who says that about the dentist?! Fabulous and fun!!

Have been looking for a new dentist since i moved to the city and after some research and a TikTok post(haha) i decided to try out Maison Be. To start off the appointment making process was so smooth for a new patient, didn't have to call just made an appointment online; the front desk staff is very very organized, so welcoming and kind, very short wait and even offered me a beverage while i waited. The hygienist(completely forgot her name but i believe it starts with a J) and Dr (Ellen Katz) were both so sweet and personable. They both made me feel so comfortable with the amenities provided AND checked in with me while they were checking and cleaning my teeth. I really appreciate the service and visit I received because as a person of color I feel a lot of offices aren't as welcoming and genuine about the care they give me. So glad I found my new dentist! Thank you so much!!!

The doctor has the most personable approach, remembering me every time. Had my first ever filling (I was nervous) and they made me so comfortable. It also was super quick and efficient. As a former dentist hater/avoider, they have truly turned my views on the dentist around.

Dr. Ellen is the best. She had a comprehensive understanding of what I needed to get taken care of and she provided a plan that would work effectively to ensure I get the results I want. She was extremely attentive and performed every procedure smoothly with great results and zero pain! I recommend her for all dental needs and trust her to do what’s best for the patient because of her vast experience and academic knowledge. The experience at the office was 5 stars, it’s a beautiful place and felt like I was at a luxury spa!

About Us
What type of sedation is right for me?

The ideal type of sedation for you depends on your anxiety level and the complexity of the dental procedure. For routine cleanings or minor dental work, nitrous oxide is likely the best option. However, if you experience high anxiety and are undergoing more complex procedures, oral sedation might be more appropriate.

How long will it take for the sedation method to start working?

Nitrous oxide sedation typically takes effect within 2 to 3 minutes, providing immediate calming effects. On the other hand, oral conscious sedation usually begins to work within 30 to 60 minutes, depending on how your body processes the sedative.

Can I eat or drink before undergoing sedation dentistry?

This depends on the type of sedation you will receive. For nitrous oxide sedation, eating or drinking beforehand is generally acceptable. However, if you are opting for oral conscious sedation, it is usually recommended to fast for at least 6 hours before your appointment to ensure the medication is as effective as possible.
