Dr. Cardo Talks About What Sets Them Apart In Sedation Dentistry
Options Like IV Sedation Make a Difference in Your Care
Our office offers our patients the option of Intravenous Sedation, to some it is referred to as “Twilight Sedation” for their dental treatment. Intravenous Sedation is designed to better enable you to undergo your dental procedures while you are very relaxed; it will enable you to tolerate as well as not remember those procedures that may be very uncomfortable for you. IV sedation will essentially help alleviate the anxiety associated with your treatment. You may not always be asleep but you will be comfortable, calm and relaxed, drifting in and out of sleep – a “twilight sleep”.
All anesthesia options are administered and monitored by the doctor. Whether you experience mild to severe dental fear or anxiety, choosing IV sedation or other dental anesthesia option can mean the difference between avoiding necessary treatment and getting the life-changing care you need for a healthy, confident smile. Other benefits of IV sedation and dental anesthesia options include:
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous Oxide is a sweet smelling, non irritating, colorless gas which you can breathe. Nitrous Oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. Nitrous oxide is safe; the patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide. Patients are able to breathe on their own and remain in control of all bodily functions. Some advantages of nitrous oxide include:
Reasons To Not Use Nitrous Oxide
Though there are no major contraindications to using nitrous oxide, you cannot use it if you have emphysema, if you are pregnant, exotic chest problems, M.S., a cold or other difficulties with breathing. You may want to ask your dentist to see how you feel with this type of sedation method before proceeding.
Do not let dental fear keep you from the healthy, confident smile you deserve.
