Do you know what sedation dentistry is and what your options are when you visit our dental office? Did you know there are four common types of sedation that can be used to ensure that oral health care procedures and treatments can be adequately given at the dental office with minimal discomfort? They are listed below:
– Inhaled Minimal Sedation: Inhaled minimal sedation, also referred to as laughing gas or gas sedation, is a sedative in which you breathe oxygen and nitrous oxide through a mask to place you into a state of relaxation and calmness.
– Oral Sedation: Oral sedation is a type of sedation that requires an individual to take a pill. Once a pill is ingested, it can begin to go to work after a roughly an hour or so to help eliminate discomfort and in some cases, place an individual into a period of sleep.
– Intravenous Sedation: Intravenous sedation, also known as IV moderate sedation, is a sedative in which a drug is directly injected into your veins. The process is fast-acting and can be adjusted for the necessary dosage.
