3 Common Types of Sedation to Help Relieve Dental Anxiety

Dental Anxiety:

Dental Anxiety Does being in the dental office make you feel tensed? Are you not comfortable with getting dental treatments? Would you rather endure your toothache than see your dentist? If you just responded yes to these questions, it’s okay. You’re not alone. Dental anxiety is common among patients but it’s crucial to take steps to address it. With dental fear, chances are you’ll see yourself skipping dental treatments you need. Doing this may only magnify a dental issue that can otherwise be treated using simple procedures.

Types of Sedation:

Types of Sedation There are various types of sedation you can choose from, depending on your situation. Your dentist can walk you through your choices. Be honest how you feel so they can also help you to the best of their ability. Don’t be ashamed to admit you’re nervous or anxious as dental professionals understand this is natural and are there to help.

Slide 4:

Here are common types of sedation offered in dental offices.

Inhaled Sedation:

Inhaled Sedation Also known as laughing gas, this type of sedation is provided to a patient through the use of a mask. Laughing gas and oxygen are combined and the result is a gas that helps you relax when inhaled. Your dentist will control the amount of gas administered. This sedation can be considered mild or minimal compared to other forms as you will still be able to drive home after receiving treatment. Also, the effects of the gas wear off fast.

Oral Sedation:

Oral Sedation This sedation is taken orally as you do with any medicine. Your dentist will ask you to take a pill before receiving dental work. During your treatment, you’ll feel drowsy but you’ll still be awake. For patients that are more anxious, a larger dose may be recommended. This may cause patients to fall asleep but no worries, your dental team will be there to monitor your vital signs. You’ll also be awakened quickly.

Deep Sedation:

Deep Sedation Deep sedation is usually used for complex dental procedures. It may leave you almost unconscious or asleep while receiving dental treatment. You may not be easily awakened until the effects of the anesthesia subsides. Your dentist and the rest of the dental team will monitor you. Your dentist will only recommend that you receive deep sedation when they deem necessary. Also, all forms of sedation dentistry are safe. They have long been used to ensure patient comfort during dental treatments.
