Do You Need Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry Options

IV Sedation

Administered intravenously, this sedation dentistry option puts patients into a sleeplike state, though they will remain awake during their procedure. With amnesic effects, many patients who receive this dental anesthesia option may forget parts of their care or the entirety of their treatment. IV sedation is an ideal choice for patients with more severe anxiety and those needing more complex treatments. With some lasting effects, patients will need someone to drive them home after their visit.

Oral Sedation

An oral sedative is typically administered to a patient an hour or so before therapy. This kind of sedation dentistry is generally used to help patients feel less anxious before their treatment. Depending on the type of dental anesthesia used and the dosage level, patients may or may not be able to drive themselves home after their treatment.

Nitrous Oxide

Another sedation dentistry option is nitrous oxide, sometimes referred to as “laughing gas.” This is administered to the patient just prior to treatment. Nitrous sedation is inhaled via a mask, allowing patients to be awake and aware during their treatment while also feeling relaxed and anxiety-free. Most patients can drive themselves home after a nitrous treatment since the effects subside quickly.

North Carolina’s Leading Dental Anesthesia Experts

At Smile Solutions Dental Implant Center, we never want to let fear or worry get in the way of an important dental procedure. Numerous health complications can emerge when oral treatments are ignored or delayed due to phobia or anxiety. In the event of untreated tooth decay, for example, some of the many repercussions can include accelerated bone loss in the jaw, tooth loss, and the onset of soft tissue degeneration. More severe long-term complications can even include an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.
