Sedation dentistry is a great option for patients who anticipate and experience anxiety or fear during a dentist’s office visit. Sedation dentistry uses a sedative medication to help you feel more relaxed and calm during your visit. Based on your needs and budget, there are several types of sedation dentistry available at our Covington office.
- Nitrous oxide (N2O), also known as laughing gas, is a sedative gas mixed with oxygen and inhaled during your treatment to help you feel more relaxed. Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that wears off within just a few minutes after the flow of gas is stopped.
- Oral sedation involves taking an oral medication prior to your dental appointment. At the time of your appointment, you will feel calm and at ease.
- IV sedation, involves administering sedative medication intravenously (through the veins) by means of a painless injection. This method of delivery enables our dentist to provide the sedation more quickly, as well as easily control the level of sedation to ensure that you stay comfortable. IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that it will not make you unconscious, but you may feel so relaxed that you fall asleep during your treatment. You may also not remember all of the details of your visit.
Sedation dentistry is a great option for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have an extremely sensitive gag reflex. Sedation dentistry allows you to be comfortable and relaxed during your dental treatment.
During your visit, you will be carefully monitored by your experienced dentist and team. Depending on your sedation option, a friend or family member may need to accompany you to and from your appointment.
With sedation dentistry, you can have the experience of sleeping through your dental procedures. The best part is that you will not even remember the procedure when you wake up! Sedation dentistry is a great option for patients who are looking to have a positive experience with their dental implants and other surgical procedures.
