Experience Comfortable Care: Sedation Dentistry in Vero Beach
At Planes Dental Arts in Vero Beach, we understand that dental visits can cause fear and anxiety in many patients, which is why we’re happy to provide several options for dental sedation.
Which sedation options are available and how do they work?
Nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is one of the most common forms of dental sedation available. Administered through a face mask, it helps the patient relax while receiving treatment. It has an almost immediate effect and wears off shortly after a patient’s procedure ends.
Oral sedation uses prescription medication to provide a deeper level of relaxation. Ingested approximately one hour before your visit, this sedation option is most often recommended for patients who require multiple procedures and for those whose services may require more time to complete.
IV sedation is administered directly into a patient’s bloodstream using an IV line. This provides an immediate and deep level of sedation that still allows patients to remain conscious and responsive throughout their appointment.
What benefits are associated with dental sedation?
Because dental sedation boosts relaxation and calms dental anxiety, sedation enables patients to receive the care they need. Additionally, patients may find that sedation helps them get through longer or more complex procedures in a shorter amount of time because they are able to remain relaxed throughout.
Who should consider dental sedation?
Patients who experience anxiety or fear when it comes to receiving dental treatments may benefit from the use of dental sedation. People who have a low pain threshold, sensitive teeth, a strong gag reflex, or difficulties getting numb may also be good candidates.
