Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry offers individuals with general anxiety about going to the dentist or fears about a specific dental procedure the opportunity to have a stress-free and more comfortable experience. Utilizing safe and controlled sedation techniques before the dental procedure, the patient is eased into a state of complete relaxation. This eliminates any discomfort, pain, and preoperative anxiety associated with a particular dental visit. 

Patients typically feel more at ease post-operatively with sedation dentistry as they have little or no memory of the actual moment-to-moment dental procedure.

There are plenty of types of sedation available, each depending on the suitability of the patient. Here are the most common types: 

  1. Nitrous oxide – is a type of sedation that is given to the patient through a gas mask. They will inhale the medication until they feel a bit drowsy. The patient will remain conscious for the procedure but will be relaxed throughout and have little memory of what happened. This is suitable for kids and is completely safe. 
  2. Oral sedation – is given by taking a pill. Since the medication takes too long to take effect, the patient should ingest it at least an hour before the treatment. Oral sedation has similar results with nitrous oxide, where the patient remains sleepy but responsive throughout the procedure.   
  3. IV sedation – is administered through intravenous injection. The medication takes effect almost instantly. This is also an advantage for the dentist, so they can adjust the dosage anytime if needed. 

Let your dentist know if you will be comfortable with having sedation before your dental treatment.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation means that you will be given a prescription for an oral medication prior to you appointment. Taken at the recommended time before your appointment, this medication allows you to fully relax by the time your procedure begins. When receiving oral sedation, a patient must have an escort on the day of the procedure to drive them to and from the office.
