Are you afraid of going to your dental appointments? You’re not the only one. Many people are scared of getting into the dentist’s chair. At Dental Crown in an Hour, we are committed to putting all your fears and anxieties at rest and ensuring maximum comfort for you during the course of your dental treatments. That is why we offer sedation dentistry services at our clinics in Naples and Fort Myers.
Sedation Dentistry: How it Works
Dental experts at Dental Crown in an Hour advise you not to drink or eat anything for up to 3 hours prior to your treatment. Sedation is administered prior to your dental treatment. We will wait for some time in order for the medication to take effect. Once you start feeling relaxed, we will commence with the dental procedure to be performed. Depending upon the complexity and duration of the procedure, the following types of sedation can be used:
- Nitrous oxide sedation: Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide acts as a mild sedation agent and is administered through the nose. Nitrous oxide relieves anxiety, reduces pain and elevates your mood. It has minimal side effects and a high level of safety.
- Oral conscious sedation: This is administered in the form of a small pill that is taken before your appointment. The sedative dulls your senses and leaves you with little or no memory of the dental procedure performed under its effect.
- Intravenous sedation: is administered by injecting it into the bloodstream. It gives you a sense of having slept through your visit.
After completion of your treatment, we recommend that you get someone to drive you back home and exercise caution until the effect of the sedative wears off.
