The Basics of Sedation Dentistry

If you have dental anxiety, sedatives can be used to help you stay calm when visiting the dentist. The dosages of sedatives range from slight relaxation to a deep sleep. For a list of some of the most common types of sedation used in dentistry, look below:

– Deep Sedation with General Anesthesia: General anesthesia is used to place a patient into a deep sleep during the procedure. With deep sedation, patients will not wake up until the anesthesia has entirely worn off.

– IV Sedation: A sedative is injected directly into your bloodstream for an extremely fast and effective form of sedation.

– Oral Sedation: Your dentist can prescribe a medication that can be taken prior to your visit to help you relax.

– Inhaled Minimal Sedation: Often considered the mildest and most generic form of sedation, inhaled sedation uses a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, to help patients remain calm. The effect wears off quickly.
