Do You Have Dental Anxiety?
Patients with dental fear and anxiety often benefit from sedation dentistry solutions. Nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia are all effective types of sedation that relax patients and allow dentists to
Nitrous oxide is a gas administered through a nasal mask. Nitrous oxide sedation is a very effective form of quickly calming a patient. IV conscious sedation is given to patients through an IV that travels directly into the bloodstream. Patients will feel so relaxed with this type of sedation they may even fall asleep. They can also remain conscious during treatment but most likely will not remember the procedure.
General anesthesia is used for more advanced and extensive dental procedures, or in special cases. Patients won’t remember anything that happens when they are unconscious under general anesthesia. If you choose general anesthesia, you will be required to have a ride to your appointment and back home.
