What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is the use of sedatives during dental treatment to put the patient in a state of relaxation. We offer sedation dentistry options to patients who require long, invasive, or complex treatment that could cause discomfort or make it difficult for the patient to relax. Sedation can also help patients who experience dental anxiety to overcome their fear and enjoy the benefits of high-quality dental care.

Here are the types of sedation options we offer here at Chesterfield Woodlake Dental & Prosthodontics:

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas is a mild form of sedation that can be combined with local anesthesia to help patients relax during a variety of procedures. The sweet-smelling gas is combined with oxygen and administered through a small mask placed over the nose. It helps patients relax by making them feel calm, at ease, or giddy during the length of their treatment. Our dentists can easily monitor and control the dosage of gas patients receive. The effects wear off quickly and are completely safe for young children.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a versatile sedation option. Depending on the dosage of the medication given, the effects of oral sedation can range from minimal to moderate. It is administered orally as a pill and places the patient in a state of deep relaxation without putting them to sleep. Oral conscious sedation can cause some patients to feel drowsy or groggy following treatment.
