Sedation

Dental Care In a Relaxing Environment

Den­tal seda­tion is a tech­nique that can be used when a patient suf­fers from den­tal anx­i­ety or den­tal pho­bia. We are hap­py to offer a num­ber of solu­tions for our patients to make their den­tal vis­it as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble. Seda­tion den­tistry tech­niques enable patients who might oth­er­wise avoid the den­tist to receive den­tal treat­ment nec­es­sary for a healthy smile. Depend­ing on the extent of the anx­i­ety or pho­bia, vary­ing degrees of den­tal seda­tion can be uti­lized, admin­is­tered by an anes­the­si­ol­o­gist for your safe­ty.

 

Nitrous Oxide Seda­tion

Nitrous oxide seda­tion, also known as “laugh­ing gas,” is com­mon­ly used to make treat­ment more com­fort­able. This seda­tion is inhaled through a mask that allows you to breathe in the med­ica­tion, and induces a state of relax­ation. Local anes­thet­ic will be admin­is­tered in con­junc­tion with nitrous oxide to elim­i­nate pain.

 

Deep Seda­tion

Deep seda­tion pro­duces uncon­scious­ness in which the patient does not feel, see or hear any­thing dur­ing den­tal treat­ment. The anes­thet­ic med­ica­tions are admin­is­tered through an intra­venous line or through an anes­the­sia mask or a com­bi­na­tion there­of. A board cer­ti­fied den­tal anes­the­si­ol­o­gist will come to our office and admin­is­ter short-act­ing anes­thet­ic med­ica­tions. After your recov­ery from anes­the­sia, you will return direct­ly home in the care of a fam­i­ly mem­ber or an adult of your choos­ing.
