What are the different methods of sedation used in dentistry?

There are three main forms of sedation used today in modern dentistry:

  • Inhalation Dentistry: The use of nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) to help sedate the patient
  • Oral Conscious Sedation: The use of oral medications to help you relax during your dental procedure
  • IV (Intravenous Sedation): The use of a catheter to help inject medications directly into your bloodstream.

What are some benefits of sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry has grown in recognition due to a number of benefits it offers our patients. Some of these perks include:

  • The ability to perform all of your dental work in one visit, thus allowing less long term stress and anxiety in the dental chair.
  • The ability to forget what was done (amnesia) during your procedure. This is especially useful with IV sedation as many pharmacological agents contain retrograde amnesic effects allowing you to forget what happened during your procedure.
  • Reducing long term costs by allowing you to finish the dentistry that your mouth desperately needs.

What is Oral Conscious Sedation?

An oral agent (medicine) is given to you normally one hour prior to your procedure. Dr. Jasmine and her team will guide you as you start to feel more relaxed and at ease before your procedure. Remember that oral sedation does not actually make you sleep. You will be conscious and able to answer any questions the doctor has. The main goal with oral conscious sedation is to help you relax during the procedure and put your anxiety aside. Our patients are normally thrilled by how smooth and easy their procedure proceeds with this method of sedation.

The most common agents that are used for oral conscious sedation include Valium and Halcyon. Both of these anti anxiety medications are given by dentists depending on their preference.

At Best Dental, we offer oral conscious sedation to our patients. This has allowed many of our patients to feel comfortable and stress-free during their treatment.

You will need to have a driver take you home after your procedure as you will not be able to drive yourself home. When you arrive home, make sure you take the rest of the day off to relax and recover. Plenty of fluids are recommended after the procedure to quickly remove the agents from your system.

What is Intravenous Sedation (IV Sedation)?

IV sedation is also known as twilight sedation. Also known as “sleep dentistry“, It is the insertion of a catheter inside your vein that allows the doctor to directly inject pharmacological agents into your blood. This allows your dentist to titrate the medication to give you the exact amount of medication that you need during your procedure. IV sedation a lot of times will allow you to sleep during your dental procedure, which is a huge benefit to our patients.
