Types of Sedation Dentistry
- Oral Sedation
3640 Dental offers oral sedation, often known as conscious sedation, if you desire a more relaxed condition than nitrous oxide can deliver. You will have a tablet to take before your visit if you choose this sedative option. The dentist will continuously check your pulse, blood pressure, and oxygen levels throughout your treatment to guarantee a safe and pleasant experience.
- Nitrous Oxide
Commonly known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a pleasant, non-addictive gas that can relax your anxieties to help you more efficiently handle dental checkups, cleanings, and other procedures. Nitrous oxide gained its moniker because it frequently causes euphoria (and can even invoke a case of giggles). The overwhelming sensation for most patients is one of rest and peace.
Nitrous oxide is inhaled slowly and comfortably with a nosepiece. You will begin to feel the effects of the gas after a few minutes of breathing it in via your nose. During your nitrous oxide sedation, you will remain aware and conscious; you will simply feel more relaxed.
