Set up your smile for summer success with sedation dentistry therapy. With sedation dentistry, relaxants can be administered before or during oral health care treatments to calm and soothe the patients so no pain or discomfort is felt.

Listed below are some of the sensational ways sedation dentistry can be used in dentistry today:

– One common variety of sedation is gas sedation, also called inhaled minimal sedation, which uses a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide to form laughing gas, which is excellent for helping patients relax.
– A fast-acting and adaptable form of sedation called IV moderate sedation directly injects sedatives into your bloodstream.
– Sedation via pills that are ingested orally is called oral sedation, whereby pills can take up to an hour to work, but depending on the amount given, they are capable of causing a mild relaxation to a total sleep-state.
– The most well-known and common variety of sedation is deep sedation, also called general anesthesia, which can cause patients to be put to sleep and remain asleep until the effects entirely wear off.
