We use advanced sedation dentistry in a number of our in-house services. Our goal is to ensure you are always comfortable and calm throughout any dental treatment or procedure at our office. Our team will work closely with you to assess your pain and comfort levels to make sure you never experience unnecessary discomfort.
The Purpose of Dental Sedation
Dental sedation refers to medicine that is designed to reduce physical pain associated with treatment or to reduce anxiety and help you feel more relaxed while dental work is being completed. Dental sedation can make treatment, even when undergoing more complex restorative procedures, more comfortable and ensures our staff can work effectively. We offer dental sedation through IV sedation, oral sedation, and Nitrous/laughing gas.
Do dentists still use laughing gas?
Nitrous oxide, commonly called laughing gas, is used in our office. This invisible gas is regularly used for dental sedation because of how fast it is to both take effect and to wear off.
What sedatives are used at Lifetime Dental & Implant Center?
At our office we use nitrous oxide for oral conscious sedation and triazolam for IV sedation, besides offering general and local anesthetics. IV sedation is normally used for deep yet short term purposes. Local anaesthetics are usually injected directly into the gums in the area of treatment. General anaesthetics normally result in patients having no recollection of their treatment.
