Types of Sedation
This type of sedation involves an injection that will make you feel drowsy and sleepy. You will remain conscious but you might not even remember most parts of the treatment. Sedation will provide you with analgesia (pain relief). After the treatment, you will feel rested, like you had a nap. This type of sedation wears off really quickly.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Throughout this type of sedation, you will have to inhale a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide air throughout a special nasal mask. This type of sedation is very popular in children dentistry, because of it’s effectiveness, fast wear off and pain-free sedation without any needles required. It is also called “laughing gas” which creates relaxed, euphoric atmosphere, making the patient feel comfortable and stress-free.
It is the most easily operated type of sedation. It requires the patient to swallow a sedative pill the night before and/or only a few hours before the treatment. So as soon as the procedure begins the patient already feels calm and relaxed. On the other hand, with this type of sedation patient requires a designated driver, which would be able to bring the patient to the dental office before and after the procedure.
