What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is an effective anesthesia technique that involves the use of medications or nitrogen oxide gas to reduce dental anxiety. No matter which type of dental sedation is used, the main is to help you feel relaxed and calm during a dental treatment.
It also reduces pain and discomfort. It is particularly beneficial for children as it helps to calm them before a dental procedure. Dental sedation is completely safe for children and adults, making it a great option for those with dental fear or anxiety.
What Types of Sedation Dentistry Are Available?
Our state-of-the-art practice utilizes the most effective techniques to enhance oral care for our patients. We offer three types of sedation dentistry, which include:
- Nitrous oxide sedation: It is one of the most common approaches used for sleep dentistry. This technique involves the use of nitrous oxide gas (or laughing gas) to induce a state of relaxation. We will place a nasal mask and allow the nitrous oxide gas to flow in a monitored dosage. It takes effect within a few minutes. Once the procedure is complete, you can resume your normal activities after some time.
Question About Sedation Dentistry?
- Oral conscious sedation: For moderate levels of dental anxiety, we provide oral medication to help you relax throughout the treatment. While you remain conscious during the process, you will feel calmer and experience little to no discomfort. The effects of oral sedation take longer to resolve, so it is better to have a friend or family member along.
- Intravenous (IV) sedation: It is the most effective type of dental sedation. It involves intravenous administration of a sedative drug that immediately induces a state of calmness. Our dentists will monitor its dosage to ensure your vitals remain stable throughout the treatment. IV sedation is very potent, so we only reserve it for severe cases of dental phobia.
