Advantages of Sedation Dentistry

IV Sedation Dentistry and Other Dental Anesthesia Options

If you’re looking for sedation anesthesia near you, Dr. Pringle provides full IV sedation for a variety of treatments at Wellington Family Dentistry & Implant Center. Many of our customers wake up with a brand-new set of teeth and don’t even remember sitting down in the operating chair. Of course, since you won’t be able to drive yourself home following your surgery, it goes without saying that you will need transportation to and from our practice in Wellington, CO. In addition to IV sedation, here are some of the other dental anesthesia options we offer at our premier dental facility:

General Dental Anesthesia

This is the strongest type of sedation dentistry available, and a doctor usually administers it. At Wellington Family Dentistry & Implant Center, many patients that are scheduled for complex invasive procedures are eligible for general anesthesia.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is taken by mouth, usually in the form of a pill or capsule. It is often administered an hour or two before a patient’s appointment. This kind of sedation dentistry is frequently used to help patients feel less anxious and afraid. Depending on the type of sedation utilized (and the dosage Dr. Pringle recommends), a wide range of effects may be felt.

Nitrous Oxide (N2O) Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a gaseous sedative that is given through a mask just before a patient receives treatment. It is commonly referred to as “laughing gas.” Patients who receive N2O sedation can stay awake and alert throughout their treatment, while gradually becoming more relaxed. Laughing gas has a short half-life, so once treatment is over, most patients can drive themselves home.

IV Sedation Example Model

IV Sedation

IV sedation dentistry puts patients into a deep sleep-like state throughout the duration of their treatment. It’s possible that you won’t even remember sitting in the chair during your procedure due to the brief amnesic effects of conscious IV sedation. It is advised that patients make travel arrangements to and from our Wellington, CO, practice, as IV sedation typically has long-lasting effects.

Don’t let dental anxiety call the shots when it comes to oral treatment.
