Advantages of sedation dentistry

Posted on 4/10/2023 by San Francisco Dental Arts
Advantages of sedation dentistryDo not have any fear of going to the dentist for a checkup or any other dental procedure. The dentist will ensure that you are comfortable when receiving any dental treatment, if you are having simple dental procedures the dentist will use mild sedation but if the procedure is complex then powerful sedation options are used. The advantage of our dental practice is that our sedation methods are suitable and safe for you. It is not only important for the patient to be calm and relaxed, but it is equally important for our dentist to perform the procedures needed without movement. However, with sedation dentistry, you will need to have another person with you in order to drive you home.

IV Sedation for sleeping

IV sedation is one of the most common methods used by dentists to keep you calm during a dental procedure. With IV sedation, you will be asleep for the majority of the procedure. This is the location where anesthetics are administered via injection. This is mostly done on the area where the oral surgeon is working. During IV sedation, the patient is usually asleep and may not wake up during the procedure.

Oral Sedation for relaxation

Oral sedation is typically administered orally. The dentist ensures that you take some pills to help you relax and feel at ease. Nitrous oxide can be used by the dentist to relax a patient during a procedure. Nitrous oxide is given to patients in the form of a gas that causes them to laugh. When you have a more complex dental procedure, our dental team is prepared to provide IV sedation. Visit the clinic to learn more about IV sedation and how it is used in dentistry. Our team will offer the best sedation for you do not hesitate to consult on the type of sedation before any procedure.
