Sedation Dentistry: How Does It Help Relieve Dental Anxiety?

Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry helps to relieve dental anxiety and it’s very beneficial because patients who would once avoid the dentist are now able to seek out treatment and maintain their oral health. Also, your oral health is directly related to your overall health with this being said choosing sedation dentistry would mean that in addition to maintaining your oral health you’re also maintaining your body’s overall health.


The Different Types Of Sedation:  

Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous Oxide which is also referred to as laughing gas involves the placement of a mask over your face and then inhaling the gas through your nose. It is an odorless gas and can sometimes cause a patient to have a euphoric feeling in a matter of minutes. That calming feeling will fade when the mask is removed.


Intravenous Conscious Sedation
Intravenous Conscious Sedation involves using an IV as the method of sedation. This type of sedative is administered by a trained dental professional and its effects are fast acting. Also, you will be able to feel the effects of it almost immediately. This form of sedation allows a patient to feel really comfortable.
