What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Typically, sedation dentistry is designed for patients who suffer from anxiety in the dental chair, or for those who have special healthcare needs that make sitting through dental procedures difficult.
Here are some of the common benefits of sedation dentistry:
- Relieved anxiety
- Few side effects
- Can result in more productive visits
- Painless - no needles required!
- Safe and effective
For nearly two centuries, laughing gas has been used to decrease pain and settle nerves in dental patients. Laughing gas contains a mild sedative that is emitted through a comfortable nasal hood. It can be easily adjusted throughout the procedure, giving patients the exact amount they need.
If you opt for laughing gas, you can expect to feel fully relaxed for the duration of the procedure. Once everything is complete, you will begin feeling back to your normal self within minutes!
Oral Conscious Sedation
Creative Smiles Dentistry offers oral conscious sedation to help anxious patients relax during treatment. This form of sedation is taken as a pill prior to the procedure and can be used as both a mild and moderate sedative. With mild sedation, patients feel drowsy and for moderate sedation, patients may fall into a light sleep.
Please note, if you opt for oral conscious sedation, a trusted family member, friend, or caregiver must drive you to and from your appointment.
