What Is Sedation Dentistry?

So, what exactly is sedation dentistry? It’s a method used to help patients feel more relaxed and at ease during dental procedures. This can be especially helpful for those with dental anxiety or phobias, as well as individuals who have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time. 

Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to help patients reach a state of deep relaxation while still remaining conscious. It can be used for both simple and more complex procedures, and our highly trained team will closely monitor you throughout the entire process.

Benefits Of Sedation Dentistry

Not only does sedation dentistry make your dental experience more comfortable, but it also has other benefits as well. For instance, since patients are in a relaxed state, we can often complete multiple treatments in one appointment, saving you time and hassle. 

Additionally, because you are so calm during the procedure, our dentists can work more efficiently without worrying about patient discomfort or movement. This leads to better results and faster recovery times. 

Furthermore, sedation dentistry can help alleviate anxiety and fear associated with dental visits, making it easier for patients to maintain their oral health in the long run.

Types Of Sedation Dentistry

There are various types of sedation dentistry available, each offering different levels of relaxation.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative inhaled through a mask. It helps you relax while remaining fully conscious and wears off quickly. This is a great option for patients who experience mild anxiety or nervousness during dental procedures.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed pill before the appointment to induce a more relaxed state. This type of sedation can range from mild to moderate, depending on the dosage and individual’s response. It may cause drowsiness, so it’s important to have someone accompany you to and from the appointment.

Intravenous (IV) Sedation

IV sedation is administered through an IV line and provides a deeper level of relaxation. This method is often used for longer or more complex procedures, as it allows the dentist to adjust the level of sedation throughout treatment. Patients will be closely monitored during and after the procedure.

Who Qualifies For Sedation Dentistry?

Are you anxious or fearful about dental procedures? Do you have a sensitive gag reflex? Are you undergoing a lengthy or complex treatment? If so, then you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry. It is important to discuss your concerns and medical history with our team to determine the best type of sedation for your individual needs.

It’s a great option for:

  • Patients with dental anxiety or phobia
  • Individuals with a low pain threshold

  • Patients with a strong gag reflex
