Sedation Dentistry, also known as Sleep Dentistry, is ideal if you are like the other 35 million Americans who have fears and anxieties about visiting the dentist.
Sedation Dentistry can be a combination of anxiety-reducing factors, including oral medications, intravenous sedation, and nitrous oxide.
Medications such as Valium can be used to help you relax and feel more comfortable, especially during long procedures.
Nitrous oxide is another form of sedation dentistry that provides pain relief and distraction. Upon being administered nitrous oxide, you will experience conscious sedation. You will be awake during the procedure, but you will be completely comfortable and relaxed. This method is done through a breathing mask, and will quickly erase your anxieties related to your dental procedure.
