What Is Dental Sedation?

Dental sedation refers to the use of medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It’s often referred to as “sleep dentistry,” although this is somewhat of a misnomer as patients are usually awake, aside from those under general anesthesia. Sedation options range from minimal sedation, where you’re relaxed but fully conscious, to general anesthesia, where you’re completely unconscious. Our practice offers oral sedation to ensure you stay calm and comfortable throughout your visit.

Determining Your Need For Sedation

The decision to use dental sedation is influenced by several factors, including the nature of the dental procedure, the intensity of your dental anxiety, and your personal preferences concerning comfort during dental treatment. During our initial consultation, we dive into these factors and conduct a comprehensive health assessment. This step enables us to identify the sedation method most compatible with your unique needs and circumstances.

Beyond the nature of your treatment and your anxiety levels, your overall health is another essential consideration. We’ll review your medical history, current health status, and any medications you may be taking. This information allows us to ensure that the sedation option chosen is safe and effective for you.

Once we’ve decided together, you can rest easy knowing our team is proficiently trained and experienced in administering sedation. We monitor you closely throughout the procedure, adjusting sedation levels as needed and ensuring your safety and comfort every step of the way. We’re here to guide you through your dental journey, making it as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Oral Sedation Overview

Oral sedation is an effective method that involves taking a prescribed medication before your appointment to alleviate anxiety. The medication, which falls under the category of anti-anxiety drugs, helps create a deeper sense of relaxation and can even limit your memory of the procedure. This sedation method allows us to perform the treatment efficiently and potentially reduces the number of required visits. It’s important to note that the effects of oral sedation are longer-lasting, so you’ll need someone to accompany you to the appointment and drive you home afterward. With Dr. Ottosen & Nygard Endodontics, you can expect an understanding and compassionate team ready to deliver expert care tailored to your needs. We’re here to ensure your comfort, allowing you to receive necessary dental treatment with ease and peace of mind.
