Types of Dental Sedation

There are several different types of dental sedation. The best one for you depends on your situation, the level of your anxiety, and any pre-existing health conditions you may have. Here are a few of the options we have available at Advanced Dental Arts.

IV Sedation

IV sedation offers the deepest level of relaxation available. During IV Dental Sedation, a board-certified anesthesiologist works with our Advanced Dental Arts specialists to administer the sedative via an IV. The medication gets delivered directly into the bloodstream. As a result, it takes effect quickly. The doctors can adjust the level of sedation as needed. This provides a comfortable experience for the duration of treatment.

Oral Conscious Sedation

During oral conscious sedation, your local dentist will administer a prescription sedative by mouth. You’ll take this about an hour before your treatment. The medication will make you feel drowsy, but you can still respond during treatment. This is a moderate form of sedation that provides a relaxing experience throughout treatment. Also, it’s important to note that it wears off after a few hours.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Also known as “laughing gas,” you’ll inhale nitrous oxide through a small mask placed over your nose. This simple delivery provides a relaxing effect. It can be easily adjusted throughout the appointment by your dentist as well. Nitrous oxide sedation clears from the system quickly, leaving you with no lingering effects after the treatment.
