We understand that visiting the dentist can be nerve-wracking for some, which is why our dental practice offers sedation dentistry to those who need additional care. Whether you’re receiving a routine dental cleaning or a more extensive procedure, you deserve to be comfortable and calm throughout your appointment.
IV stands for intravenous sedation. This type of sedation is administered through an injection into your bloodstream. You won’t be fully unconscious, but you will be kept relaxed while your dentist performs your treatment.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Most people are familiar with nitrous oxide sedation thanks to its colloquial name “laughing gas”. When you receive this sedation, your dentist will place a mask over your mouth and nose. Although this type of sedation will keep you conscious, you’ll be extremely relaxed.
The effects of this type of sedation are administered by means of a pill. Your dentist will give this to you an hour before your scheduled appointment. You’ll feel drowsy but relaxed while your dentist performs your treatment.
