To help patients feel calm and relaxed during dental procedures, the oral care specialists at Cambridge Dental Group might use various methods of sedation. This practice involves using special medication to help the patient feel at ease and experience less anxiety while treatment is administered. The process is incredibly safe and heavily monitored for safety.
Some procedures that may warrant the use of dental sedation include:
Cambridge Dental Group provides the following types of dental sedation:
A pill taken by the mouth to provide minimal to moderate sedation. The patient should feel tired, but still aware of their surroundings.
Applied directly to the site of the procedure to provide a numbing effect, so the patient does not experience any pain during the procedure. Local anesthesia leaves the patient entirely aware of what is happening during the procedure, but it may not lessen their anxiety.
Inhaled through a mask, laughing gas is a safe and effective sedative that can make you more calm and comfortable during certain procedures without putting you to sleep. The effects of laughing gas typically wear off quickly after the mask is removed.
