One of the more common types of sedation that is requested in our office is the use of nitrous oxide. This is also known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide helps to put patients into a state of euphoria. While in this state, you may still feel the work that is being completed, but it won’t hurt and you will be able to easily respond to the dentist.
Oral Sedation Dentistry
If you do not want to be put to sleep entirely, then you may wish to use oral conscious sedation. There are oral medications that can be taken before your procedure, to help you relax before receiving treatment. While in a semi-conscious sedated state, you will be able to communicate with the dentist, while still feeling at ease.
Oral sedation has many different states. If you don’t want to be aware of what is happening during your dental procedure, and you just want to wake up after it is finished, then sleep sedation dentistry might be just what you are looking for. When this type of sedation is used, you will need a friend or family member to accompany you. There is little after care involved, and you will need to be observed for around 6 hours after the procedure to ensure that there are no complications from the sedation. While IV sedation is the most common form of sleep sedation, other approaches are used as well.
