WHAT IS sedation DENTISTRY?
Sedation dentistry uses medication to limit pain and help patients relax during dental procedures. You can feel safe and secure while in the dentist’s chair, knowing that you are receiving quality dental care without the stress and pain.
Dentistry has come a long way and proving comfort is our #1 priority. We provide sedation therapy here for all of our patients here that need extra TLC when it comes to their mouth. Sedation therapy is offered for all forms of treatment; the two types we offer are Nitrous Sedation and I.V. Sedation.
Nitrous Sedation also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask and inhaled through the nose. It does not put you to sleep so you are able to hear and see what your dentist is saying but your entire treatment visit should be calm and comfortable. This provides relief for those who have large treatments and/or dental anxiety.
IV Sedation also known as twilight juice, is administered into a vein and will put you into a sleepy trance. Although you are conscious, your eyes are closed and you are in a relaxed state. This provides relief for those who have large treatments and/or dental anxiety.
