For many, getting your teeth cleaned may seem a bit unnerving, as it can be alarming to let someone work on your mouth. However, modern technology has made dentistry extremely precise and competent. Furthermore, sedation is regularly used in many dental treatments, which can help relieve dental anxiety and any stress you may be expressing that is keeping you from visiting the dentist. With sedation dentistry, a hope for relaxation has a finally arrived.

Create an improved oral health identity with sedation dentistry. If your oral health care requires sedation dentistry, remember the following:

Inhaled Minimal Sedation: Inhaled minimal sedation is commonly known as laughing gas. It works by having the user breathe in a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide to help them relax.

Oral Sedation: Oral sedation is a sedative that is administered orally, but must be taken up to an hour before the procedure, as it can take that long to start working.

IV Moderate Sedation: Intravenous moderate sedation is injected directly into your bloodstream so it goes to work immediately.

Deep Sedation and General Anesthesia: This type of sedative is used or intensive procedures as it can put you into a deep sleep from which you cannot awake until the anesthesia wears off.
