Why IV Sedation?
As mentioned above, IV sedation allows you to sleep soundly throughout your entire appointment, resulting in no painful memories. The sedative is administered intravenously (through an IV), but before this occurs, you will be well-informed about the entire process. It’s important that you feel comfortable and confident.
Because you’ll be given such a low dose, you will be able to sleep peacefully but still respond to stimuli, as well as breathe on your own. At Enamel Dentistry Lantana Place, we generally recommend this option for complex or lengthy procedures. You will not be able to eat or drink before receiving this type of sedation and have to make transportation arrangements following your appointment.
If this doesn’t sound right for you, perhaps oral conscious sedation or nitrous sedation would be a better fit.
Why Oral Conscious Sedation?
Oral conscious sedation is one of the most commonly used types of sedation. It’s used for a range of procedures, including routine cleanings and oral surgeries. The sedative is given to you in pill form an hour before your appointment, and the calming effects last throughout the entire treatment.
This type of sedation will also allow you to relax in the dentist’s chair, possibly even cause you to fall asleep and forget your treatment entirely. If you get anxious going to the dentist’s office or want to avoid painful memories, this option could be best for you.
Once you’ve taken the medication, you will begin to feel groggy and disconnected from your surroundings. Again, you will not be able to eat or drink before your procedure and will need to arrange for a ride home.
Why Nitrous Sedation?
Perhaps the most common type of sedation is nitrous sedation, or “laughing gas.” This is a minimal yet effective method of sedation that doesn’t create any long-lasting side effects. You’ll even be able to drive yourself home following your procedure.
This sedation is administered through a comfortable mask; you will inhale the sedative. As a result, you will feel relaxed, giddy, perhaps even as if you are floating. We recommend this option for those who want to relieve minor dental stress and/or anxiety.
