Our Select Sedation Options
Often called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask prior to treatment. You’ll stay alert and awake but feel relaxed throughout your procedure. Once your mask is removed, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly.
This kind of sedation is taken orally, typically two hours before your visit. Many patients experience a decrease in dental anxiety and discomfort, with the degree of effects depending on what medication is prescribed and at what dosage, and an altered mental state. If you are undergoing this type of anesthesia, you will need someone to drive you home.
Administered intravenously, this type of sedation puts you in a sleeplike state, though you will remain awake during your procedure. With amnesic effects, many patients who receive IV sedation may forget parts of their care or the entirety of their treatment. With some lasting effects, patients will need someone to drive them home after their visit.
The Dangers Of Dental Anxiety
If you’re afraid of dental visits, you may decide to skip them and ignore dental symptoms that should receive attention. The associated risks are considerable since small dental health issues that go unchecked can eventually turn into big health issues. Gum disease can cause gum recession and tooth loss. If left untreated, this can lead to additional systemic complications, more pain and more treatments. With all of our options for sedation dentistry in Miami, FL, this need never happen to you.
