Types of Sedation Dentistry
Local sedation is a numbing agent administered via needle and syringe and directed at the area affected. Commonly, it is used in combination with laughing gas.
Nitrous oxide (aka laughing gas) is an inhalant sedative gas that is mixed with oxygen. Breathing the gas during your treatment deadens receptors of discomfort and gives a sense of well-being and/or euphoria. Laughing gas is a mild form of sedation that wears off within just a few minutes after we remove the mask.
Oral sedation comes in the form of a pill or dissolvable tablet that you take before your appointment. By the time of your procedure, you’ll experience a calming effect and feel at ease. We do not recommend driving while on oral sedation, so be sure to have someone else drive you to and from your appointment.
Consider sedation dentistry if you feel it may help you feel relaxed during your treatment. If you suffer from anxiety or have had negative experiences in the past, we can help you. Dr. Weimer is dedicated to your comfort, and the sedation techniques used are efficient and safe. All members of our team are highly trained to care for you during your visit. We carefully monitor patients who undergo any form of sedation.
