Types of Sedation Dentistry
For light sedation, nitrous oxide is a gas that leaves patients in a state of relaxation. Administered by placing a mask over your nose, nitrous oxide produces a light level of sedation known as anxiolysis. Nitrous oxide sedation is easily controlled and wears off quickly. As a result, it is the only form of sedation where you may drive yourself home following your appointment. Because it is so safe and easy to control, nitrous oxide is often used for children who suffer from dental anxiety.
When moderate sedation is required, prescription medication taken before a procedure provides patients an added layer of relaxation. The sedative medication taken before arriving at your dental appointment helps reduce anxiety, especially in patients who have a more intense fear of the dentist. Modern dental sedatives not only help with a sense of calm but also reduce your sense of pain.
Sedative medications administered via an IV effectively reduce pain and anxiety while receiving dental care. IV sedation is often a helpful option for patients with a strong gag reflex, extreme dental sensitivity, and widespread oral health issues. Although it does not put you to sleep, this form of sedation dentistry leaves you relaxed during your appointment and without any memory of it afterward. As a result, IV sedation can help patients with extreme anxiety who have major dental health issues by allowing them to drastically improve their dental health.

Restore the Health of Your Smile with Sedation Dentistry
Fear of the dentist keeps a good number of patients for receiving dental care they desperately need. Even worse, allowing the health of your gums and teeth to decline can have an adverse effect on your general health, as well. Studies have shown a link between periodontal disease and heart disease. Don't let fear of the dentist impact your overall wellbeing. Sedation dentistry at our oral surgery office serving Tampa, Valrico, and Land O Lakes, FL, can make dental work virtually free of discomfort and anxiety.
Regular dental care is essential to a healthy smile. With sedation dentistry, patients find it possible to receive the treatment they need to maintain their dental health without getting overwhelmed by anxiety. As patients begin to enjoy these benefits, they generally have a more positive association with the dentist. In some cases, this lays the groundwork for receiving dental treatment without sedation dentistry to help them relax.
Sedation dentistry and its many forms combined with local anesthesia can help relieve your anxiety about an uncomfortable visit. Dental phobia generally stems from a bad experience at the dentist in the past. With the available options, patients can rewrite those memories so that they can overcome their fears.
