Information About Sedation Dentistry

If you struggle to relax during your visit to the dentist, you should talk to the doctor about sedation dentistry. For information about sedation dentistry, consider the following:

– The strongest method of sedation is general anesthesia. General anesthesia will put the patient to sleep until after the dental procedure is finished.
– If you would like a sedative that is effective but will not leave you drowsy, ask your dentist about nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. Laughing gas is a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide, and is found in many dental offices.
– If you prefer to take a pill or tablet, your dentist can prescribe medication. However, pills take time to take effect and should be taken according to the dentist’s instructions.
– For a fast-acting sedative, intravenous sedations given through injections are almost immediate. They are introduced directly into the bloodstream.

Sedation dentistry may help make your next visit easier.
