Your Key to Relaxing Dental Visits
Dentistry offers a wide variety of solutions to make your smile healthier and more beautiful, yet, a lot of people are unable to take advantage of these transformational treatments due to fear of the dentist’s chair. At Celebration Family Dental, we can provide sedation dentistry services to make your dental treatments more comfortable for you.
Types of Sedation
Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative which is administered through a small nasal mask in combination with oxygen. It is a great anxiety-reliever and will make you feel light and relaxed during any procedure. Your level of sedation can be adjusted during your appointment, and the effect of the gas wears off quickly once the mask is removed, so there is no “hangover” effect.
Oral Sedation: Sedatives in the form of pills are a popular option for many patients since they produce a mild to moderate sedation effect without the use of needles. You will have little to no memory of a dental procedure performed under oral sedation. The effects of this method can last for up to a few hours after a procedure. Therefore, it is recommended that friend or family member drive you to and from your dental appointment.
