What is Sedation Dentistry?

June 7, 2019 0

The mere thought of the dentist’s chair is enough to send some people’s heart-rates up. And the sound of the drill? Forget about it. But what if we told you that at Sedation and Implant Dentistry Las Vegas, we offer the option of a relaxing and calm dental experience?

This might sound too good to be true, but it’s not. At Sedation and Implant Dentistry Las Vegas, Dr. Thomas Gonzales is qualified to administer medication that provides relief from the common anxieties many people feel when faced with visits to the dentist.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a common term used to describe the administration of medication to help dental patients cope with the fear and angst associated with going to the dentist. For some, the anxiety is debilitating, and they avoid visiting the dentist altogether. Regardless of the reason for the fears and anxieties people have around going to the dentist, sedation dentistry provides a helpful solution.

How does Sedation Dentistry work?

At our Las Vegas dental office, the primary method of sedation used is IV Sedation. Also known as Twilight Sedation, the patient will not necessarily be “asleep”, but in a deep state of relaxation, unbothered by their surroundings. Delivered intravenously (IV), the patient will be conscious, drifting in and out of sleep, but will not remember the procedure at all. After the procedure is done, the patient will feel as if the several hour long procedure went by in a blink of an eye. During IV Sedation, a qualified professional will make adjustments to the level of sedation to make sure the patient is constantly carefree and comfortable.

At Sedation and Implant Dentistry Las Vegas, we carefully monitor the vital signs of each patient undergoing sedation throughout the duration of the procedure and the sedation process. It is necessary for sedation dentistry patients to arrange for a ride home.
