Anesthesia & Sedation Dentistry
Oral health need not be a stressful experience.
A lot of people would rather endure the torment of a toothache than step foot in a dental clinic. For those who avoid dentists, sedation dentistry offers to take most of their anxiety away. Sedation treatments can be used for a simple tooth cleaning down to the most invasive of dental procedures.
Conscious Sedation is ideal for patients whose behavioral problems make it impossible for the dentist to carry out procedures in treatment or surgeries.
Sedation dentistry involves administration of oral NO2 for procedures that take an extensive amount of time and is best for people with dental anxiety or for children who cannot control their movements.
Some medications help create more tranquil, relaxed dental visits, while others control pain, and may even put you into a deep sleep. This can be done for patients of all ages. With the exception of those put under general anesthesia, most patients are usually awake during sedation.
