    How Can Dental Sedation Help

    Dental sedation is an effective technique that involves the use of medications to ease anxiety and minimize pain during dental treatments. Whether you require a simple dental cleaning or a more invasive procedure, we can help you relax with sedation dentistry measures.

    It is particularly helpful for patients with mild to moderate levels of dental phobia or anxiety, low pain tolerance, and a sensitive gag reflex. Generally, these issues often make people hesitant to receive dental treatment, but with dental sedation, we can ensure a painless and comfortable experience.

    Dental sedation is also beneficial for patients who have to undergo long or complex dental procedures. We may use it along with local anesthesia for effective results.

    Questions About Sedation Dentistry?

    Types of Sedation Dentistry

    At our facility, we offer two types of dental sedation that are easy to administer and have a short recovery time.

    • Nitrous Oxide Sedation
      This is a type of inhalation sedation in which we place a small mask over your nose. It allows the inflow of nitrous oxide gas in a monitored dosage. Within a few minutes, it induces a state of relaxation and eases anxiety.

      Once the procedure is complete, we will remove the mask and allow you to recover. The effect fades away after 10 to 15 minutes.

    • Oral Conscious Sedation
      If you have mild to moderate dental phobia, we may prescribe an oral sedative to take some time before your appointment. It will help you relax at the time of your scheduled appointment.You will remain conscious during treatment but won’t feel pain or discomfort. The effect of oral sedation may fade over a few hours, so we recommend bringing someone along to drive you back safely.

    Is Sedation Dentistry Safe

    Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective option for patients of all ages. We typically recommend it for children who feel anxious or fidgety before dental treatment.

    The use of nitrous oxide sedation helps them relax within a few minutes. This way, they can receive the proper dental care and attention they deserve.

    It is also a suitable measure for adults with anxiety or dental phobia. Anxiety may cause high blood pressure, elevated heart rate, or loss of consciousness.

    To avoid these complications, we utilize sedation techniques to help you feel relaxed throughout your appointment.
