Sedation dentistry is a wonderful way to catch up on all of your dental care needs in a calm, safe environment. With dental sedation, you can easily combine treatments into fewer appointments while we provide a relaxing atmosphere to minimize any (dentist) anxiety or phobia related to oral care.
From painless anesthesia and warm blankets to laser drill-free filings and televisions in the operatories, chances are you’ve never experienced dentistry this relaxing.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is commonly referred as sleep dentistry. Our Anesthesiologist uses certain medication administered via IV sedation which makes the patient drowsy and many of them sleep away during the procedure. This helps the Pediatric Dentist to work with ease and more efficiently.
Types of Sedation Dentistry Available
The type and level of sedation medication that you receive will depend on things like the type of treatment you require, the overall length of your procedure, and the level of awareness that you prefer.
A type of conscious sedation, this method uses oral sedation medication taken just prior to your planned procedure and lasts for a few hours. Although you’ll feel extremely sleepy and may not even remember anything about the appointment, you’ll still be partially alert and able to answer basic questions. You might want this sedation for tooth extraction, longer restorative needs, or if you experience dental anxiety.
Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas)
Also called “happy gas”, nitrous oxide is one of the most common types of sedation dentistry services that we offer. Since nitrous oxide provides an extremely light conscious sedation, it allows you to relax while still being completely aware of everything going on around you. This “laughing gas” is fast acting and quickly reversible, with no lingering drowsiness; you can get back to your normal routine in no time.
Pediatric Dentistry Sedation
Occasionally children will require medically necessary dental care that they cannot sit through without sedation. If happy gas is not quite strong enough, our Pediatric Specialists can treat your children under General Anesthesia under the supervision of an Anesthesiologist in a hospital set up. We have tie ups with many reputed hospitals to provide this service. Pediatric sedation dentistry allows your child to receive the care necessary in a painless, anxiety-free appointment.
