What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation is used to relax patients before a dental procedure. Sedative drugs are administered to patients to create easy and efficient dental care. Local anesthetics are also used at the location in the mouth to block pain receptors from reaching the affected teeth and gums. At Shalimar Family Dentistry, we offer oral conscious and IV sedation at an affordable rate to ensure the comfort of our patients.
- Oral conscious sedation involves taking medication in pill form to achieve the appropriate level of sedation. By using oral sedation, patients are able to remain conscious and are able to respond to commands without experiencing any pain. Oral sedation may remain in your system after your dental procedure is complete. It is important that you have a friend or loved one assist you after receiving oral sedation to take you to and from the dentist office.
- IV sedation involves the use of an IV to achieve a level of sedation that adequately reduces the anxiety of the patient. With IV sedation, different levels of consciousness can be managed depending on the amount of anesthesia used. Patients can range from merely feeling relaxed to being unresponsive. For IV sedation, it is also important to have a friend or loved one assist you once your dental treatment is complete as IV sedation can still remain in your system.
