What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Do you suffer from dental anxiety, have a low pain threshold, or have a physical condition that creates care barriers? You may be one of the millions of patients who could benefit from the use of sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedatives or anesthetics to help our patients relax. The goal of sedation is to create a comfortable, relaxing, and stress-free dental care experience.
At Armstrong-Katzmark DDS, our team offers laughing gas sedation in combination with local anesthesia. We do so to numb the treatment area and put the patient at ease. Be sure to discuss your care needs with our dentists to determine if you are a candidate for dental sedation.
What Is Laughing Gas?
Laughing gas is a gentle form of inhaled sedation. It’s very mild and has few side effects. The sweet-smelling gas is combined with oxygen and administered through a small mask placed over the nose. Laughing gas can be combined with a local anesthetic for a variety of procedures and is recommended for patients of all ages. It is typically used to help young children relax and sit still during treatment. Once the gas is turned off, the effects wear off quickly.
Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
Yes, sedation dentistry is safe. Every member of our dental team is highly trained. They have the experience and expertise to administer sedation safely and effectively. To determine if you are a candidate for sedation dentistry, be sure to talk to our dentists during your next visit.
