Sedation dentistry (nitrous oxide, iv, etc.)

Would you rather suffer through the pain of a toothache than visit the dentist? Does the thought of undergoing a simple tooth cleaning make you tense up with fear? If you answered yes, don’t worry, you are not alone. 75% of U.S. adults suffer from dental anxiety and 10% suffers from a dental phobia. Luckily, there is a solution. You can finally relax in the dental chair thanks to sedation dentistry.

Who can benefit from sedation dentistry?

A lot of people can benefit from sedation dentistry. You can especially benefit from dental sedation if:

  • You avoid care because of anxiety
  • You have a sensitive gag reflex
  • You don’t get numb with local anesthesia
  • You are scared of needles
  • You have special needs
  • You have a low pain threshold
  • You suffer from extreme tooth sensitivity

What are the benefits of sedation dentistry?

Some of the top benefits of sedation dentistry include:

  • It can make it feel like less time has passed
  • It helps get more accomplished in one visit and reduces the need for multiple visits to the dentist
  • It allows you to relax during dental treatments
  • It helps keep your oral health in good standing since you won’t avoid visits

What are the types of sedation dentistry?

The three most common types of sedation dentistry are I.V sedation, oral sedation, and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Each type of sedation dentistry possesses its own advantages and different levels of sedation. As a result, you will need to consult with your dentist to determine which is best for you and your specific needs.
