What Is Sedation Dentistry?

The most important thing to know and remember about sedation dentistry has nothing to do with the sedation but rather the dentist. Make certain that you are in the care of a dentist that is empathetic, that you trust and feel very comfortable with. When a patient has general anxiety about having dental work done, having a good relationship with the dentist is critical to having a positive experience.

His patients feel comfortable and trust that they are in good hands when they in his care. He is kind and empathetic to the needs of all patients especially those with high anxiety or phobia.

How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

Sedation Dentistry is when pharmaceutical medications are used to relieve a patient’s anxiety and fear during a dental procedure. This is generally used to treat patients who are having more extensive dental work done such as root canal, dental implant, bone grafting or extractions. However, in some cases, patients may have such tremendous anxiety or phobia that they must be sedated for even the most basic procedures. These cases are rare and the dentist will decide if it is necessary to use sedation after the initial consultation with the patient

How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

There are three types of sedation dentistry that are standard practice for most dentists. These three are inhalation sedation, oral sedation, and intravenous sedation. The first, inhalation sedation, is also known as “laughing gas” which is actually Nitrous oxide. This gas is administered through a nasal mask worn by the patient. The patient is still conscious and responsive to direction yet in a state of comfort and relaxation.

The second form of sedation, oral sedation, is usually in the form of a pill or liquid suspension that ingested by the patient. Children are often given this liquid because they respond better to it and are more responsive.

This type of sedation is only effective for a short time and patient usually has very little recollection of their experience. The third, intravenous sedation is administered through the blood stream by injection. The patient is described as being in a twilight state and rarely remembers their experience because the sedation causes partial or full memory loss (amnesia). However, the patient is still responsive to commands and external sensory stimulation. Usually administered by mouth, the medication leaves people fully alert and able to respond to questions. (That’s why the process is called conscious sedation.)

I found this dentist online and even though it was out of my area he was good. He is knowledgeable and made me comfortable. I had to have a tooth replaced after a surfing injury and he gave me a good deal. I would go back to him for sure.
