If you are nervous about a dental procedure, we can provide various forms of sedation in order to put you more at ease. Our goal is to make sure you are as comfortable as possible during the procedures. We can further discuss these options at the consultation appointment, but here is a brief description.
We offer Nitrous Oxide Sedation, also known as laughing gas. This involves breathing nitrous oxide gas through a mask and it makes you more relaxed. Benefits of extremely safe and effective method of sedation include a short duration of onset and brief recovery time.
We also offer Oral Sedation, which involves taking an oral sedative pill by mouth the night before and the morning of the procedure in order to calm your nerves and make you more relaxed.
Lastly, we offer Intravenous Light Conscious Sedation (IV sedation), which involves administering sedative medications directly into the blood stream by starting an intravenous line. During the procedure, one would be able to respond to the prompts by the surgeon such as opening the mouth, turning the head, etc but the medications allow the patient to be very relaxed and comfortable. The sedative medications also tend to cause memory loss. The surgeons and staff are highly trained and closely monitor the patient during the sedation. Monitoring including Electrocardiogram devices, capnography, pulse oximetry, etc are used to ensure that the patient is safe at all times.
