Several options exist for a variety of sedation dentistry treatment options. Depending on whether you need a deep sedative or only a mild relaxant, different forms can be used. Sedation can be given in the forms of gas, injections, and even in pill form.
Gas sedations are typically used to as calm and relax patients. Injections and oral sedation are extremely popular for dentists who wish to adjust the level of sedation needed, as it can range from a mild sedative up to a sleeping sedative. In situations where a deep sedative is needed, deep sedation through the use of general anesthesia is used. When under the effects of general anesthesia, you will not wake up until the sedative has worn off. In conjunction with your oral health care procedures needed, your dentist can determine which level of sedation dentistry you will need.
