If you suffer from dental anxiety and have concerns about visiting your dentist because of fears associated with any pains you may feel, be sure to speak with your dentist about numerous sedatives that can help make life easier while at the dentist office. Sedation dentistry provides all sorts of treatments for calming and relaxing patients and can be used to place an individual in a deep sleep. Commonly used options are as follows:
– If you are looking for a mild form of sedation, gas sedation is your best option. Through the use of gas sedation, you can have a mild relaxing given to help calm and relax you while oral health care procedures are given.
– If you were looking for a deeper form of sedation, pill sedation, also known as oral sedation has been proven to beneficial. Oral sedation can range from a mild sense of relaxation up to placing an individual to sleep. This is because dosages can be adjusted. However, oral sedation must be given at least an hour before any oral health care procedures are to be done as it takes a while to set in.
– For an immediate form of sedation, intravenous sedation, also known as IV sedation, is given via the use of a drug directly injected into your bloodstream. Via injection through a vein, it will go to work rather quickly and allow the dentist to give oral health care procedures as needed.
– For the deepest form of sedation, general anesthesia can be used. General anesthesia is used to help place an individual into a deep state of unconsciousness. A patient will remain in a state of unconsciousness until the sedative wears off.
