Nitrous oxide – Nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is used to eliminate dental anxiety, making the patient more comfortable. Once the procedure is over, the effects wear off quickly with few side effects. Recovery time is also minimal.
Oral Sedation – Oral sedation dentistry involves medications taken before a procedure to produce a relaxed feeling. Recovery time is a little longer with oral sedation dentistry and you’ll need someone to drive you home after your dental treatment is completed. Oral sedation dentistry can benefit a wide range of patients, including people with:
High dental anxiety and fear.
A severe gag reflex.
Difficulty getting numb.
Extensive treatment needs.
A desire to have dentistry done comfortably while they are fully relaxed.
IV Sedation – IV sedation dentistry is considered a moderate form of sedation. It works much like oral sedation dentistry .The effects of IV sedation dentistry are felt much quicker than with oral sedation. In addition, the patient will usually have little or no memory of the dental treatment.
