Types of Sedation Dentistry

Posted on 11/1/2023 by Weo Admin

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is most commonly referred to as "laughing gas." Within three to five minutes of breathing nitrous gas through a mask or nosepiece, the sedative effects become apparent. Throughout the operation, your dentist manages the level of sedation you get and adjusts it as necessary.

Purified oxygen is given by the dentist to the patient after the procedure to remove the nitrous oxide from their system. Due to the speedy removal of laughing gas from your system, you can drive yourself home following the surgery.

Conscious Sedation Orally

With oral conscious sedation, your dentist will give you soothing pills about an hour before the treatment starts. Dentists regularly use oral midazolam fluid and other liquid sedatives in pediatric dentistry.

Although oral sedation can make you unconscious, you can still interact with your dentist and, if required, be gently nudged out of it. It would help if you had a friend or family to drive you home after your treatment because oral sedation temporarily impairs your memory and motor skills.

IV Sedative

The most effective conscious sedation method available in a dental clinic is IV dentistry. Your healthcare professional injects sedatives straight into your bloodstream via an intravenous (IV) line. Your dentist will keep an eye on your blood pressure, oxygen levels, and pulse rate while the treatment is being done.

When receiving IV sedation dentistry, the majority of patients pass out and have no memory of their procedures when they wake up. Patients with significant dental anxiety or those undergoing extensive procedures should choose this option.

Receiving high-quality dental care should not be hampered by anxiety. Sedation dentistry can help you get the care you need for long-term oral health if the idea of visiting the dentist makes you nervous or anxious. Consult our dentist right away to find a soothing strategy that suits you.
