Sedation dentistry treatments are the perfect way to enter your summer season with a smile. Oftentimes, a dental treatment may cause dental anxiety or stress in patients, but sedatives can be used to help and relax them.

Listed below are some of the spectacular ways sedation dentistry can be used in dentistry today:

– One common type of sedation is gas sedation, also called inhaled minimal sedation, which uses a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide to form laughing gas, which is perfect for helping patients relax.
– Sedation via pills that are ingested orally is called oral sedation, whereby pills can take up to an hour to work, but depending on the dosage, they are proficient in causing a mild relaxation to a total sleep-state.
– A fast-acting and modifiable form of sedation called IV moderate sedation directly injects sedatives into your bloodstream.
– The most well-known and common sedation formula is deep sedation, also called general anesthesia, which can cause patients to be put to sleep and remain asleep until the effects entirely wear off.
