Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety or dental phobia is something millions of Americans experience, and it prevents many people from getting needed dental treatment until the problem has become much worse. We use sedation dentistry to help our patients feel anxiety-free and relaxed during their treatment at our practice, and to help patients who have trouble with gagging, certain types of procedures, or multiple procedures to get through.

 

If you suffer from dental phobia, Dr. Harris may recommend some level of dental sedation to give you the best possible experience. You and your healthy smile will be happy to have come to Vero Dental for treatment.

Types of Anesthesia

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas is inhaled through a mask and provides mild pain relief and creates a euphoric and relaxed feeling. We may pair laughing gas with another type of sedation, such as oral sedation or local anesthesia, to maximize your level of comfort.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation produces moderate sedation through oral medications. Dr. Harris will provide you with the medications prior to treatment and you will take them before the appointment to diminish pain and help you relax. We may provide additional medication during your appointment for enhanced comfort.

Moderate/Deep Sedation

Moderate sedation, or conscious sedation, allows you to remain awake during a procedure and very relaxed. It can be administered through a shot or an IV. Deep sedation is administered as IV sedation by an anesthesiologist and is often referred to as twilight dentistry or sleep dentistry. You will remain semi-conscious throughout treatment. Moderate and deep sedation differ from general anesthesia, where you are completely asleep and unable to respond to stimuli.
