Sedation Dentistry FAQs
Sedation dentistry involves the use of sedatives to help relax anxious patients during their dental treatments.
The use of sedation is typically recommended for patient that require a lot of dental work, that have a low pain threshold, and for those who have trouble sitting still.
Sedation dentistry comes in a variety of different forms which vary from conscious to unconscious, but each form of sedation will help ease pain and anxiety associated with going to the dentist.
The main types of sedation offered by dentists include:
Oral Sedation – a prescription medication that relaxes you without making you unconscious
IV Sedation – an IV sedative that helps a patient go into a light sleep for the duration of the procedure
Inhaled Sedation – nitrous oxide, otherwise known as “laughing gas” is used to keep a patient relaxed throughout a dental procedure
General Anesthesia – a form of deep sedation in which a patient will either be partially or totally unconscious.
You may benefit from sedation dentistry if you:
- Have a low pain threshold
- Have a strong gag reflex
- Require a lot of dental work
- Have sensitive teeth
- Have trouble sitting still during dental procedures
Patients who have obstructive sleep apnea or patients who are obese should consult with their family doctor and their dentist before getting any dental procedures done with sedation involved.
The duration for which the sedative will last will depend on the length of treatment, the dosage, and on your body’s ability to recover. Most forms of sedation will typically leave a patient feeling drowsy. As such, it is highly recommended to plan for a helper to assist you with getting home safely after your procedure.
Dentists use sedation for a wide variety of both general and cosmetic dentistry procedures, including:
- Teeth whitening
- Wisdom Tooth Removal
- And more!
