Your Safety, Our Priority

At our center, patient safety is paramount. Our team is highly trained in administering sedation, adhering to strict safety protocols to ensure your well-being throughout every procedure. Before recommending sedation, we conduct a thorough review of your medical history and discuss your preferences and concerns, ensuring sedation dentistry is a safe and effective choice for you.

The Benefits of Choosing Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry not only alleviates fear and anxiety but also offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Enhanced Comfort: Significantly reduces or eliminates discomfort during procedures.
  • Efficiency: Allows for multiple treatments in fewer visits, saving you time.
  • Improved Cooperation: Helps patients who struggle to sit still, ensuring a smoother and faster treatment process.
  • Positive Experiences: Encourages regular dental visits by associating them with comfortable experiences, leading to better overall oral health.

Our Sedation Solutions

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas is a mild sedative inhaled through a mask, offering a relaxed state while remaining fully conscious. It's an excellent choice for patients seeking a slight edge off their dental anxiety, with effects that wear off quickly after treatment.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative pill before your appointment, ensuring you arrive feeling calm and relaxed. This method is ideal for patients with moderate anxiety, as it allows you to remain awake but in a deeply relaxed state throughout your treatment.

IV Sedation

IV sedation provides a deeper level of relaxation, administered directly into the bloodstream for immediate effect. This option is perfect for patients with moderate to severe anxiety or those undergoing more complex procedures, allowing for a semi-conscious state where you're unaware of the treatment being performed.

General Anesthesia

For the most intensive procedures or for patients who wish to be completely unconscious, we offer general anesthesia. This method is administered by an anesthesiologist, ensuring you experience no discomfort or memory of the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if sedation dentistry is right for me?

The best way to determine if sedation dentistry is suitable for you is by consulting with a dental professional. They can assess your dental needs, medical history, and anxiety levels to recommend the most appropriate sedation method.

Can I drive after receiving sedation dentistry?

For lighter sedation methods like laughing gas, you may be able to drive yourself home. However, for oral sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia, you will need someone to drive you due to the lingering effects of the sedatives.

How long does the sedation effect last?

The duration of the sedation effect depends on the type used:

  • Laughing Gas wears off quickly, often within minutes after the mask is removed.
  • Oral Sedation and IV Sedation may have lingering effects for a few hours, so you'll need someone to drive you home.
  • General Anesthesia also requires recovery time and assistance post-procedure.

Will I feel any pain with sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry greatly reduces discomfort and, in many cases, patients feel no pain at all. Depending on the type of sedation, you may have little to no memory of the procedure, including any sensations of pain.

Is sedation dentistry safe?

Yes, when administered by experienced dental professionals, sedation dentistry is safe. Patients are carefully monitored throughout the procedure to ensure their safety and comfort. Discussing your medical history and any current medications with your dentist can further enhance safety.

The Periodontist & Dental Implant Center offers various types of sedation to suit different needs and preferences, including:

  • General Anesthesia: Medication administered to render the patient completely unconscious during the procedure.

  • A sensitive gag reflex
