Sedation Options We Have Available
Our dental office offers multiple methods of sedation to make your visit as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Sedation makes a procedure easy for the patient, and it reduces potential complications as the dentist performs it, an example being a patient shaking or moving in the chair. The methods we use at Bronte Oak Dental cover the range of needs regarding fear and anxiety, from simple relaxation to a state of unconsciousness. For any method, a dentist will always supervise your visit.
Our Two Most Common Forms of Sedation are Nitrous Oxide and Oral Sedation
Also known as laughing gas, we administer this form of sedation through inhalation. Nitrous oxide is the most popular method in dentistry to treat mild or moderate anxiety. Under its effects, you’ll stay relaxed and carefree during a procedure. Laughing gas is safe and effective, so patients benefit greatly from this sedation to stay comfortable and get through treatment without fear or stress. Since recovery from nitrous oxide is quick, you’ll be able to resume your regular activities after the procedure.
This form of sedation uses a prescription pill that you take before your appointment. Oral sedation is incredibly common in dentistry, and it doesn’t require needles or invasive techniques to administer the drug. Patients arrive for their procedure feeling completely relaxed and comfortable, which remains through treatment. After recovering from the effects, you can continue your normal life. This ingestible method of sedation is also safe to use and highly effective at treating fear and anxiety.
