Sedation Options to Soothe You
Administered intravenously, IV sedation induces a sleep-like state. If you suffer from dental anxiety, this is one of the best options for you, because you won’t feel anything during treatment or remember any part of the procedure afterward.
This option also induces a sleep-like state but is delivered in pill form. Since you won’t feel or remember most of your treatment this option may be a good choice if you suffer from severe dental anxiety.
Sometimes called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide will keep you alert but calm for the duration of your procedure. You inhale the gas through a mask before your treatment begins.
This form of anesthesia is applied directly to or injected into the treatment site to numb the area.
