What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry is used to help patients feel calm when getting dental work completed. Through the use of medication, we help patients relax. This type of sedation dentistry can be referred to “twilight sleep” as it can cause “forgetfulness” or short-term amnesia where you are unable to feel pain without being fully put to sleep. 

What is Sedation Dentistry Used For?

Patients of all ages can benefit from sedation dentistry, including pediatric patients. This treatment can be recommended for patients with the following:

  •  Dental Surgeries
  • Dental anxiety
  • Claustrophobic patients
  • Fear of needles
  • Special needs patients

What type of Sedation Dentistry is Available at Secure Dental?

Secure Dental offers two types of sedation dentistry to give our patients more options than traditional general anesthesia. Our goal is to create a comfortable, easy, and warm dental experience. We understand that can take an extra step with some, so we offer Nitrous Oxide and IV Sedation options for our patients.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is the deepest form of conscious sedation offered by Secure Dental. This type of sedation allows our anesthesiologist to deliver sedation medication directly to the bloodstream. Most individuals who received this type of sedation fall asleep and do not remember or have little memory of their dental work that was completed. 

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide is commonly known as “laughing gas” and is breathed through a mask mixed with oxygen. This helps you relax during your appointment. Your dentist can control the amount of nitrous oxide you receive so that you are continuously comfortable during your appointment.
