Oral sedation is simply administered by taking a pill. Helping you feel relaxed and completely at ease, oral sedation begins working once the pill is taken. With oral sedation, you will not be bothered by surrounding sounds or smells. However, if you need to respond to the dentist throughout the visit you will be able to. Oral sedation does not put you to sleep but it will make you very drowsy and you may doze off throughout the appointment. The effects of oral sedation can take some time to completely go away, so a driver is recommended to take you home following your visit.
Commonly referred to as laughing gas, nitrous sedation is given through a facial mask. The sedation begins working within minutes and helps you feel comfortable during the dental visit. Nitrous sedation can be used by adults and children. Once the mask is removed, the sedation will begin to wear off and you will be able to resume normal activities following your visit.
Sedation dentistry can save you from stress throughout a dental visit. In extensive appointments and procedures, sedation may be recommended to help you relax. With sedation, a long appointment will seem to last only minutes and you may only remember bits and pieces of your visit.
Sedation dentistry is for patients going through extensive treatment and patients who suffer from dental anxiety. Sedation has been able to help many patients receive the care that they need without having to experience discomfort and stress.
A consultation with your dentist can help you determine if sedation is right for you and which sedation is recommended.
