At e.s.i Healthy Dentistry, Dr. Jimmy Kilimitzoglou and staff have proven time and time again that dentistry can be comfortable, calming, even relaxing. It is with this emphasis that patients can feel at ease when it comes to dental procedures, particularly when it comes to sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry has been the subject of fear for some, particularly those who are already weary of visiting the dentist. However, not only is it safe, but with the right team, sedation dentistry can boost your confidence towards the dentist’s office.
As defined by e.s.i, sedation dentistry has several different types which will be explored below:
Oral Sedatives: Oral sedatives are typically used for anxiety reasons. They are often administered before a patients’ appointment, and can even cause a patient to fall asleep depending on what is administered. This method is a safe and effective tool that allows for successful procedures and a lack of fear towards said procedure.
Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide takes immediate effect after a patient inhales it. The amount used is something that can be controlled by the dentist, and the level of sedation can vary depending on this factor. With minimal side-effects and widespread use, nitrous oxide is a safe form of sedation for patients.
IV Sedation: IV sedation is typically used in cases when a deep level of sedation is necessary. Involving a direct injection into the bloodstream, it is an instant and painless form of sedation. This sleep-like state allows for longer procedures to be performed without stress or anxiety.
As noted by e.s.i, oral sedatives and nitrous oxide are not pain relievers. Because of this, anesthesia is also implemented in order to block pain. You can learn more about this here.
