The connection between dentistry and sedation has existed for many years. Sedatives often help patients to relax before oral health care treatments, so that the services can be done safely with as nominal amount of pain as conceivable, allowing the dentist to easily complete their work with maximum precision.

The best smiles are possible with sedation dentistry. Facts about sedation dentistry include:

– Inhaled minimal sedation is commonly identified as laughing gas. It works by having the user breathe in a blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide to help them relax.

– Intravenous moderate sedation is injected directly into your bloodstream for an instantaneous effect.

– Deep sedation via general anesthesia is used or intensive procedures as it can put you into a deep sleep from which you cannot awake until the anesthesia wears off.

– Oral sedation is a sedative that is downed orally but must be taken up to an hour before the procedure, as it can take that long to start working.
