Sedation dentistry allows patients to become drowsy and comfortable. The actual process involves patients taking a sedative the night before their dental visit to help them get a restful nightís sleep and another sedative about an hour before their procedure. All of the sedative will be administered in a pill form. More medication is usually given upon arrival at the dental office. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) may also be used at certain times during the dental visit. Patients are carefully monitored and cared for by a trained staff throughout their sedation visit. When the medication kicks in, the patient usually becomes extremely relaxed and comfortable. After treatment most patients have little or no memory of their procedure at all. Patients who opt for sedation dentistry are reminded to have someone around to drive them home after their dental appointments because typically sedatives will take several hours to completely wear off.
If you are someone who cringes at the sounds in dental offices and has a fear of needles, someone who has sensitive teeth or someone who is immune to the numbing effects of typical anesthetic techniques you might be a candidate for sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is not for everyone, but for those who have been avoiding getting their teeth fixed because of fear, paranoia or discomfort this method can be extremely beneficial.
