Sedation Dentistry and Health
We understand that many people suffer from dental anxiety, have had negative dental experiences in the past or feel nervous about their treatment. For this reason, we provide sedation dentistry to help you feel at ease so you can receive the care you need. Our oral surgeon may also recommend sedation dentistry if you have a sensitive gag reflex or difficulty getting numb.
Sedation dentistry involves the use of a sedative medication to help you feel relaxed, calm and comfortable. Before providing you with this medication our oral surgeon will discuss your options with you, reviewing your oral health needs, medical history and treatment options as well as discussing your level of comfort in our office. This will help us determine the right type of sedation for you and help us ensure your sedation treatment is biocompatible.
We will also monitor you closely during your appointment to ensure that you remain safe and comfortable and provide you with instructions on how to prepare for a treatment involving dental sedation and what you should do after your treatment is completed. You may need to have someone available to drive you to and from our office.
Types of Sedation Available
Local anesthetic is typically recommended for minor procedures such as basic tooth extractions.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Also known as “laughing gas,” this is usually provided for more involved procedures such as wisdom teeth removal or dental implant placement.
This form of sedation may be used for all types of oral surgery, and depending on your levels of dental anxiety or fear, you may receive this form of sedation for anything from a simple procedure to a more complex procedure.
General anesthesia is typically recommended for patients receiving extensive oral surgery procedures, or for patients with medical condition such as heart or lung disease.
