Be sure to contact us and let us know if you require sedation dentistry for general dentistry appointments. While we recommend sedation for certain treatments, we are happy to accommodate you if you need it at any time for your comfort. We offer nitrous oxide, IV sedation, or oral sedatives as sedation dentistry options to help our patients.
At your consultation, we will fully discuss your sedation options, and will review with you what to expect again at your dental appointment. We'll make sure you know how it will be administered, and what side effects you need to be aware of. You will be monitored and observed throughout for your safety.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, offers moderate sedation, and is administered through a mask. You will be conscious but fully relaxed. Many patients don't remember the procedure later. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask over the nose. It has minimal after-effects, and patients can drive home.
Oral sedatives are usually in pill form, taken an hour before procedures begin. In some cases, a pill will be given to take the night before, as well. As with nitrous oxide, a patient will be conscious, but relaxed, and won't usually remember much. These can be potent sedatives, so you won't be able to drive
IV sedation is the heaviest; some patients fall asleep, and you may feel groggy for a while afterwards.
Everyone should be able to benefit from dental care, and sedation dentistry helps those with dental fear. However, sedation during dental procedures can benefit anyone, especially during more involved procedures like surgeries for dental implants.
