What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is about using sedation during dental treatment. It is commonly done for patients with dental phobia, low pain tolerance, major dental procedure, physical handicaps or strong gag reflexes.
There are different types of sedation to calm a patient, including:
- Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas”
- IV sedation
- Oral sedatives
- General anesthetic
Here in Dr. Peterson’s office, we offer sedation & anesthetics to all our dental treatments.
The American Dental Association endorses sedation as an effective method to make a lot of patients comfortable during their dental treatments.
If you are undergoing medical treatments or taking any medications, it is important to tell us before receiving a sedative or anesthetic.
Don’t worry, we will discuss with you about the whole procedure of sedation during your free consultation.
