Sedation Dentistry

For some people, a trip to the dentist isn’t enjoyable but they can get through it uneventfully. For others, however, it represents their greatest fear. Either way, conscious sedation offers individuals a safe option for making their dental experience far more relaxing and much less memorable.

What does sedation dentistry involve?

Sedation dentistry usually involves medication (a relaxing pill) and/or gases, chosen for their appropriateness for both the individual and for the length of the procedure. Nitrous Oxide/oxygen gas is used to alter the desired level of sedation, and monitoring equipment such as a pulsoximeter is used throughout the procedure to closely monitor the level of sedation.
