What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a broad and often confusing term that includes any type of sedation used in dentistry. The two types of sedation available are conscious sedation (awake) and unconscious sedation (asleep).
Conscious sedation dentistry can involve using oral pills or nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or much more effectively, the use of an IV through which Dr. Peltzer carefully measures the amount of medication you receive, which will make you feel very drowsy and amnesic (you will not remember a thing) but should not put you to sleep.
Unconscious sedation dentistry involves the use of I.V. sedation or general anesthesia which produces complete sleep during which you will be free of pain and will have no memory of the procedure, as is typically done in the hospital operating room.
Our patients seek conscious sedation dentistry due to their various needs and the extremely high safety record of conscious sedation. Here are just a few of those needs:
- Dental fears and phobias
- No time for multiple visits
- People with special needs
- People with fear of needles and shots
- A bad gag reflex
- Difficulty getting numb
- Very sensitive teeth
- Hate the noises, smells and tastes associated with dental care
- Those that just want to be completely comfortable during there dental procedure
Mainly, people want to be completely unaware of their surroundings for major dentistry. Our patients come from all over the state as well as NJ, MA and NY for sedation dentistry to get their beautiful smile and much needed dental work in a one-time comfortable visit.
