Do You Need Sedation Dentistry?

Common Sedation Dentistry Services

Oral Sedation

As you may have assumed, oral sedation is a prescribed medication taken orally. In some cases, it can be taken an hour before treatment or upon arrival at our office. Depending on the type of medication, as well as the potency of the prescription, patients may feel anything from a moderate decrease in anxiety to feeling so relaxed they fall asleep in the chair! With this sedation, it may be necessary for a friend or family member to provide transportation home.

Nitrous Oxide

Sometimes called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a gaseous medication inhaled through a nasal mask. Although patients likely won’t laugh, they often feel drowsy and relaxed throughout their treatment. With this sedation, patients will remain conscious, relaxed and responsive throughout their care. After treatment is done, the nitrous oxide is stopped, so only oxygen is inhaled until the mask is removed. The effects will wear off quickly, allowing you to drive yourself home.

IV Sedation

Administered intravenously, this type of sedation puts patients into a sleeplike state, though they will remain awake during their procedure. With amnesic effects, many patients who receive IV sedation may forget parts of their care – or the entirety of their treatment! IV sedation is an ideal choice for patients with more severe anxiety and those needing more complex treatments. With some lasting effects, patients will need someone to drive them home after their visit.

Healthy Smiles, Healthy Life

If you feel anxious about the sights, sounds or smells of a dental visit, sedation dentistry may be the solution that keeps you in the dental office, and possibly away from failing health, as well! What many of our patients don’t realize is that receiving regular dental care can actually help prevent not only more serious dental issues, but also systemic conditions from occurring. Tooth decay can lead to gum disease, which can in turn cause tooth loss. If left unchecked, the disease-causing bacteria found in gum disease can spread throughout the body and lead to diabetes complications, high blood pressure, and even cardiovascular disease!

We don’t think anyone should experience these side effects, which is why we encourage everyone with dental fears to consider sedation dentistry. We also partner with multiple insurance companies and will help you file claims to ensure your entire treatment process is painless. Don’t let your oral health challenge become a whole-body health challenge! Explore your sedation dentistry options with us at Palani Center for Dental Implants in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, and receive the life-changing and life-saving dental care you need in absolute comfort.
