How does dental sedation work?
The process of dental sedation does vary depending on your treatment plan and the type of sedation used.
N2O gas is commonly referred to as laughing gas. It will help you relax without putting you to sleep. The gas is administered via a nose covering and creates a feeling of calmness.
Orally administered sedative drugs are ingested orally and take about an hour to take hold. Patients feel tranquil and more at ease.
Regional anesthesia is administered directly in the area where the dental work is performed, such as the gumline, nerve tissue, or teeth, to create numbness.
Intravenous (IV) sedation is a classic form of dental sedation that involves the administration of a tranquilizer intravenously. The drugs administered put patients to sleep during their appointments.
At your consultation, our team will go over the details you’ll need to know prior to undergoing dental sedation. Depending on the form of dental sedation you choose, you’ll need to make arrangements to have someone drive you home from the office following the procedure.
