Been thinking about Sadation Dentistry for your next visit?
In one study, 90% of the patients who experienced fearfulness about dentistry felt more comfortable with sedation … and you may feel no different.
There are two different types of sedation:
Nitrous oxide, commonly know as laughing gas, is an effective anesthetic with many benefits. This type of sedation dentistry is appropriate for those individuals who are dental phobic, people with a sensitive gag reflex, and people who require surgery, or who require extended and complex treatments.
Oral sedation (pills) are used for many of our patients who are needle-phobic. Since with oral sedation patients can often undergo treatment for longer at one sitting, multiple procedures can be completed in fewer visits. Like Nitrous oxide, oral sedation is also very safe, but it lasts for several hours after the appointment. You will need an escort home.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry Include:
- Elimination of fear.
- Reduction of anxiety.
- Increased comfort levels.
- Heightened relaxation.
- Increased sense of control.
