WHAT IS SEDATION DENTISTRY?
Patients who have been sedated at our dentist office will tell you it is a comfortable and relaxing method to experience dental treatment. At our office we safely and comfortably provide sedation for patients who experience anxiety when visiting the dentist. The advantages of sedation in dentistry include:
Decreased memory of the procedure
Decreased sense of time while under sedation
Decreased sense of sound from dental rotary instruments
Decreased fear or anxiety during treatment
I am fearful of the dentist but at same time do not wish to be put out for any procedures
At our office we can offer two methods of sedation without completely making you unconscious during your dental treatment
Nitrous Oxide Sedation — Nitrous oxide, also known as "laughing gas" or "happy gas", is the most frequently used method for easing mild to moderate anxiety at Exceptional Dentistry. Recovery is very fast and you can even drive home following the procedure. A mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask for the duration of your dental treatment and you will be able to communicate, or watch TV on our ceiling mounted monitors until your dental treatment is completed. We use nitrous oxide along with Pediatric dentistry routinely so that children will have a comfortable dental experience.
Oral Sedation — Another common method used in dentistry to sedate is the use of a prescription pill. A Pill is usually taken 1/2 hour prior to your appointment and will have you relaxed by the time you arrive at our office.
If you have any questions regarding dental sedation, or are fearful about dentistry please make an appointment with Dr. Michael Mazaheri to discuss your sedation options.
