If you suffer from dental anxiety, have a low pain threshold, or have a physical condition that makes it difficult to receive the care you need, dental sedation may be right for you. Sedation dentistry uses sedatives or anesthetics to help you relax during a dental appointment. The goal of sedation is to create a stress- and pain-free dental care experience and ease your anxieties about going to the dentist's office.
At Smile Care 360, we offer sedation in combination with local anesthesia to numb the treatment area and put your mind at ease. Be sure to discuss your care needs with our dentist to determine if you are a candidate for sedation dentistry.
Laughing gas is a form of inhaled minimal sedation. It is very mild and has little-to-no side effects. The sweet-smelling gas is combined with oxygen and administered to the patient through a small mask placed over the nose. Laughing gas can be combined with a local anesthetic for a variety of procedures.
It is recommended for patients of all ages, including young children to help them relax and sit still during treatment. Once the gas is turned off, the effects wear off quickly.
This sedation option is administered orally as a pill or liquid. While under oral sedation, patients become deeply relaxed and drowsy but remain conscious throughout the treatment. The dosage can be adjusted depending on the patient’s needs to provide a deeper level of sedation. Oral sedation can be combined with local anesthesia to put patients into a state of deep relaxation during a variety of dental procedures.
It is recommended that patients have someone drive them home after treatment to allow the medication to pass through their system safely.
