What Are My Options for Sedation Dentistry?
In addition to local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, we can offer you laughing gas or oral sedation. We will discuss these options with you in detail to decide which is the right choice for you.
Oral sedation involves an initial dose taken approximately one hour before the start of the dental appointment. You will feel drowsy and relaxed but still awake. If required, a second dose can be given. In some cases, people will become groggy with oral sedation to the point where they fall asleep during treatment but can be easily shaken awake.
Laughing gas is a mild sedative breathed in through a mask placed over your nose. The gas will help you relax, with your dentist controlling the dosage that you receive. Laughing gas will wear off very quickly after you stop breathing it in.
When Should I Consider Sedation Dentistry?
If you are someone who suffers from nerves and anxiety, then you should consider sedation dentistry next time you visit us. Whether it is for a general checkup or a surgical procedure, it is better for you to feel relaxed and comfortable while in the dentist chair with the aid of sedation. Depending on your specific needs, we can offer you mild to moderate sedation.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Sedation dentistry is safe. You will be monitored by our experienced team during the administration of the sedation to ensure that everything goes smoothly. We will consult with you on your medical history to determine if you are medically fit to receive your chosen form of sedation. Our team will do everything we can to make sure you are completely safe, relaxed, and comfortable during every visit.
The effects of laughing gas wear off very quickly after it has stopped being administered, allowing you to safely drive yourself home after your procedure. If you opt for oral sedation, however, driving is not recommended.
