Sedation Dentistry Options:
After reviewing your medical history, and level of your anxiety, our experienced doctors will determine which level of sedation is suited for your needs.
- Oral Conscious Sedation – Using oral sedation, a pill, usually Halcion or something similar, is given about 30 minutes to an hour before the start of your procedure. Oral sedation has an amnestic effect. This is a great benefit because patients will have minimal recollection of their visit. This level of sedation is useful in most dental procedures.You will need a ride to and from your appointment and will be asked not to eat or drink anything 8 hours before your appointment.
- Nitrous Oxide Or Laughing Gas – This gas helps you relax with its minimal level of sedation. The effects wear off quickly, which, allows you to drive after your appointment. Laughing gas is very safe for children as well.
- IV Sedation – IV sedation is the deepest level of sedation that can be done in an office setting. This type of sedation is delivered intravenously and works instantly. An advantage to IV sedation is that we can adjust the levels continually. For some patients, IV sedation wears off almost immediately after the administration is completed. For others, the effects can last for a few hours after their appointment. Patients shouldn’t drive or operate machinery for 24 hours afterward.
