Types of Sedation Used in Dentistry

  • Local anesthesia: Local anesthesia numbs a specific area. It is the most common type of sedation used in dentistry.
  • Nitrous oxide: Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a safe and effective way to help you relax during your dental procedure. You will remain awake during your procedure, but you will feel relaxed and comfortable.
  • Oral conscious sedation: Oral conscious sedation is a pill that you take before your procedure. You will remain awake during your treatment, but you will feel relaxed and comfortable.
  • IV sedation: With IV sedation, you receive a sedative via an intravenous line. You will be asleep during your treatment, but you will be closely monitored by our team.
  • General anesthesia: General anesthesia is a safe and effective way to make sure you are comfortable during your dental procedure. You will be asleep during your treatment and will not be able to remember anything about your procedure.

Procedure

Your dentist will discuss your options for sedation dentistry before beginning your treatment. After you have decided on a treatment option, your dentist will administer the sedative. You may feel lightheaded or drowsy after receiving the sedative. Once you are relaxed, your procedure will begin.

Recovery

After your procedure, you will be closely monitored until the sedative has worn off. Depending on the type of sedative you have received, you may need someone to drive you home after your procedure. Your dentist will let you know if this is necessary, or if it is safe for you to drive yourself.
