How Does Dental Sedation Work?

sedation dentist in Sacramento CA for pain free dentsitry Carmichael CAHow Does Dental Sedation Work In Sacramento?

There are several forms of dental sedation including intravenous sedation, nitrous oxide sedation, general anesthesia, and oral dental sedation. Sacramento sedation dentist, Dr. Michael Boyce, chooses to use oral dental sedation because it is a simple method to use and effective for patients both with mild nervousness and those with more serious anxiety.

With oral dental sedation, your sedation dentist can recommend the type and amount of medication to take based on your level of anxiety. You will first attend a personalized consultation with your dentist to discuss your health history and current medications so that he can determine the safest way to sedate you. Oral sedation is as simple as taking a pill and has proven effective for everyone. Oral dental sedation types include Triazolam, Valium, and Diazepam.

Your sedation dentist will give you specific instructions about when you should take the oral sedative and how much you should take. You may take it the night before the procedure, which can also ensure that you get a good night’s sleep. Your Fair Oaks – Sacramento dentist may also recommend taking it half an hour to an hour before your procedure. Once you take your oral sedative, you can prepare to enjoy a comfortable and anxiety-free appointment.

Dental Sedation During the Procedure

Dr Boyce is amazing. Gentle with sensitive areas and very intune to what you want. He is not pushy like other dentists I have been to and is very patient for those with anxiety. The ladies that work there are sweet as well and I can never imagine myself going anywhere else. I am so glad I found this place. Thank you to all the staff at Arden Dental Care for giving me my smile back! 😀

Even if your current level of sedation doesn’t seem like enough, you can still breathe and relax during your appointment, because, if necessary, we have ways to administer more sedatives while your dentist is performing the procedure. Some patients worry that the they may become more aware after their treatment begins. Our patients do not need to feel concerned about this, because your sedation dentist will know if you are becoming more aware, and he can immediately administer more dental sedation in the form of a powder that he can place under your tongue. You can rest assured that if you choose dental sedation, you will have all the benefits of stress-free dentistry and you’ll be able to see the results you want. Although you will be awake during the procedure, you will likely have no memory of the treatment itself by the time you return home.
