What isSedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help you relax during treatment for a more comfortable dental care experience. It can be used to help you relax during a variety of procedures and is recommended for patients who experience dental anxiety. Our dentist may also recommend sedation options for patients with health conditions that make it difficult for their muscles to relax or affect their care in other ways.
In addition to local anesthesia, we offer oral sedation, laughing gas and intravenous (IV) sedation options. Your sedation is closely monitored by experienced dental professionals who work to ensure your safety and comfort. Be sure to discuss your sedation options with our team to see if sedation dentistry is right for you.
What Are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry offers many benefits to meet your individual needs. Sedation allows your body to relax and can help reduce any dental anxiety you may experience. This can help increase the effectiveness of local anesthesia. Sedation dentistry reduces the sensation of passing time. This can be very useful if you need complex or multiple treatments in a single sitting. It also prevents your muscles from stiffening or becoming sore due to spending extended periods of time in one position.
What is IV sedation?
IV sedation is generally used with shorter treatment sessions. The effects are immediate and may cause you to feel as though you slept through the treatment. You may feel groggy when the IV is stopped, but this will fade over the next few hours. You will need someone to provide your transportation on the day of your procedure. While there are no lingering aftereffects, the sedative effects of these options can take up to 24 hours to fully diminish.
