Sedation dentistry allows you to completely relax during your entire visit. Once sedated, some patients sleep through their visit, but all patients are able to complete care without feelings of anxiety.

 

Types of Sedation:

 

IV Sedation – Moderate to High Anxiety

Nitrous Oxide – Moderate Anxiety

General Sedation – High Anxiety

Oral Concious Sedation – Moderate Anxiety

How It Workssedation-dentistry-oklahoma-city

 

Sedation application varies for each of the 3 types of sedation, based upon the needs and the anxiety level of the patient. We want you to be as relaxed as possible when improving your smile.

 

IV sedation

 

Ideal for patients who want to go to sleep and wake up and it’s done

Undergoing treatment such as wisdom teeth removal

Complete several procedures in a single visit

Administered by an experienced dental anesthesiologist

 


Nitrous Oxide Sedation

 

Great for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety

Effects of nitrous are very pleasant

So safe and effective that it can even be used for children

Comfortable/ Easy to wear nasal mask

Patients may safely drive home after dental visits

 


General Sedation

 

Incredible way to control pain

The deepest level of sedation available

Very very safe application

Ambulatory anestesia unit used for deployment

Same technology in treatment as outpatient or hospital setting

Very low levels of nausea post treatment

 


Oral Conscious Sedation

 

Experience stress-free and pain-free dentistry

Oral conscious sedation includes a prescription for a specific medication

Easy to take pill before appointment

Mild side effects allow the patient to relax fully for a few hours

 

**We find that oral medication is the least predictable of our three options, because we can only estimate how long the sedative will remain effective and how profound it will be.

 

Post Treatment

 

Following treatment with oral conscious sedation or IV sedation, there is typically little recollection of treatment. We recommend that patients are driven to and from our office by a trusted friend or family member and the patient remain supervised for the remainder of the day, while the effects of sedation wear off.
