Misconceptions About Sedation Dentistry

Contrary to popular belief, sedation dentistry doesn’t necessarily induce sleep. Most sedatives allow patients to remain awake during the procedure while calming their anxiety. Laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation are the most popular types of dental sedatives, and each of them offers different levels of sedation based on individual needs.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Are you one of the many Americans who avoid visiting the dentist because of fear or dental anxiety? If so, sedation dentistry could be the solution for you! Here are just a few of the many benefits that sedation dentistry can offer:

Alleviates Anxiety

Dental visits can be stressful, but with sedation dentistry, patients can finally relax and feel at ease. Sedatives can help calm nerves and alleviate anxiety, making dental visits more comfortable and stress-free.

Few Side Effects

Most sedatives used in sedation dentistry have few side effects, and they can be taken by mouth, eliminating the need for painful injections. This means patients can avoid the pain and anxiety often associated with dental procedures.

More Can Be Accomplished in a Single Visit

Sedation dentistry allows dentists to perform more procedures in a single visit. This means that patients can save time and hassle by avoiding multiple trips to the dentist.

Perfectly Safe

Safety and compliance are top priorities in sedation dentistry. Our dentists carefully analyze a patient’s medical history and current medications before administering any sedative — ensuring a smooth, hassle-free experience.

Types of Sedatives

The advancements in sedation techniques have revolutionized dentistry, providing patients with a comfortable and painless dental experience. Here are the different types of sedation techniques that you can expect at your next visit to Milestone Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics:

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, is the mildest form of sedation used in dentistry. It is delivered through a nose hood that fits over the patient’s nose throughout the entire procedure. Once inhaled, the gas induces a feeling of relaxation and well-being while reducing anxiety and pain.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is a moderate type of sedation that is administered through a vein in the arm or hand. It produces immediate and powerful effects since the medication is delivered directly into the bloodstream. Patients often feel like they slept through the entire procedure and have little or no memory of the treatment.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation involves taking medication by mouth to induce a moderate level of sedation. This option is ideal for patients who have a fear of needles or injections. The medication helps dull the senses, making it harder for patients to feel pain or recall noises and smells during the procedure. A dose of medication is taken before the appointment, and it is topped up during the procedure as required.
