Sedation dentistry is the use of sedatives or anesthetics during a variety of dental care procedures. The goal of sedation is to help the patient relax during treatment for a stress- and pain-free experience. Sedation can be used in combination with a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and help the patient relax. This can make dental procedures more comfortable for patients who experience dental anxiety, have certain physical conditions that make it difficult to relax, or other barriers to treatment.
Be sure to discuss your care needs with Dr. Todd to see if sedation dentistry is right for you.
Laughing gas is a mild form of sedation that our team administers as a gas. The sweet-smelling gas is combined with oxygen and delivered to the patient through a small mask placed over the nose during treatment. Laughing gas can be combined with a local anesthetic to help patients of all ages relax, and is recommended for young children to make them comfortable during treatment. The effects of the gas wear off quickly after treatment with little to no grogginess.
This sedation option comes in the form of a pill or liquid that can be administered orally. While under oral sedation, patients become deeply relaxed and drowsy but will remain awake during the procedure. The dosage can be adjusted depending on the patient’s condition to provide a deeper level of sedation. Oral sedation can be combined with local anesthesia to put patients at ease during a variety of dental procedures.
