|•||Deep sedation. This sedation keeps you on the brink of consciousness. You may or may not fall asleep.
|•||General anesthesia. This is the strongest form of sedation. It is designed to keep you asleep throughout your entire procedure.|

|•||Oral sedatives. As the name suggests, oral sedatives are taken by mouth. You take medication approximately an hour before your procedure, as it takes approximately 30 minutes for the medication to start working.
|•||IV sedatives. Intravenous sedatives are administered directly into the bloodstream while you are in the dentist's chair, and go to work quickly. Both deep sedation and general anesthesia are done through an IV.|
