Keep your smile safe this summer with the help of sedation dentistry. With varying degrees of sedative, rest assured that your oral health care treatments will be done safely and effectively, with little to no discomfort to you whatsoever.

Listed below are some of the superb ways sedation dentistry can be used in dentistry today:

– A fast-acting and variable form of sedation called IV moderate sedation directly injects sedatives into your bloodstream.
– Sedation via pills that are ingested orally is called oral sedation, whereby pills can take up to an hour to work, but depending on the dosage, they are capable of beginning a mild relaxation to a total sleep-state.
– One common form of sedation is gas sedation, also referred to as inhaled minimal sedation, which uses a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide to form laughing gas, which is excellent for helping patients relax.
– The most well-known and common style of sedation is deep sedation, also called general anesthesia, which can cause patients to be put to sleep and remain asleep until the effects entirely wear off.
