When should I consider Sedation Dentistry?
There are different reasons using sedation dentistry. Some are when you have lengthy procedures that will require you to sit still for a long amount of time. If you have a powerful gag reflex, or are afraid of needles. If you find you are regularly anxious before going to the dentist or have a child that likes to wiggle it is a good idea to consider sedation.
- Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is a common way of receiving sedation during dental procedures. It is fast acting and only takes 30 seconds to 4 minutes to act. It also wears of quickly.
- Oral Sedation is prescribed and taken before going to your dental appointment. It helps patients feel more relaxed overall during their procedure.
- Intra Venous Sedation (IV sedation) is especially helpful when having an invasive surgery. When patients use IV sedation they feel like they have slept through the procedure
If you have a dental procedure you are feeling especially nervous about, please give us a call and we can make a plan of what dental sedation will work best for you.
