Sedation dentistry is the practice of using effective sedatives to ease a patient’s mind during dental procedures in order to minimize pain felt and remove any anxiety or stress they may be feeling during treatment. If you suffer from any stress or anxiety, your dentist can administer a sedation treatment to help relax you and prepare you for any oral health services you may need.

Focus your oral health care on sedation dentistry. Save your smile with sedation dentistry and these important facts:

– Deep sedation via general anesthesia is used or intensive procedures as it can put you into a deep sleep from which you cannot awake until the anesthesia wears off.

– Inhaled minimal sedation is commonly referred to as laughing gas. It works by having the user breathe in a concoction of oxygen and nitrous oxide to help them relax.

– Oral sedation is a sedative that is swallowed orally but must be taken up to an hour before the procedure, as it can take that long to start working.

– Intravenous moderate sedation is injected directly into your bloodstream for an instant effect.
