What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is the practice of using anesthetics or other substances to sedate patients during treatment, ensuring that they have the most comfortable experience possible. This allows oral surgeons to perform tooth extractions and more without the patient being susceptible to the pain that would be experienced without sedation. Sedation can be applied by injection, inhalation, or by being consumed orally.

Sedation Methods

Inhalation Sedation

Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, is a safe, inhaled sedative used before treatment. It’s one of the safest sedation methods because it’s fast-acting and reversible. It doesn’t induce sleep but ensures relaxation during procedures. Effects dissipate minutes after mask removal.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation varies from minimal to moderate based on the dose. For minimal sedation, a pill is taken an hour prior, making you drowsy but awake. A larger dose induces moderate sedation, possibly causing some to sleep, but they can be easily awakened with a gentle shake.

IV Moderate Sedation

You receive the sedative drug through a vein, so it goes to work more quickly. This method allows the dentist to continually adjust the level of sedation.

Deep Sedation and General Anesthesia

You will get medications that will make you either almost unconscious or totally unconscious during the procedure. While you are under general anesthesia, you cannot easily be awakened until the effects of the anesthesia wear off or are reversed with medication.
