The following types of sedation are used at Walnut Ranch Dental Spa.
Inhalational Sedation (minimal)
Nitrous oxide/Oxygen mixture produces a relaxing effect. This is the only form of sedation dentistry where you may be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.
Oral Conscious Sedation
The Doctors at Walnut Ranch Dental Spa will evaluate your level of dental anxiety and write you a prescription for 1-2 small pills. Often one pill is taken the night before your procedure to assist with obtaining a good nights sleep, the other pill is generally taken 30-60 minutes before your appointment. You will need a driver to take you home.
IV Sedation Dentistry
IV sedation dentistry is ideal for patients experiencing moderate to severe dental anxiety, especially to the point where they may have avoided years of necessary dental treatment due to fear or anxiety. IV sedation in dentistry is also technically known as moderate conscious sedation.
IV sedation offers significant advantages over nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation because it is a technique with greater control which can address a wider range of patient needs, safely, with great effectiveness.
Some Benefits/Advantages to Oral Sedation
- The maximum level of sedation which can be achieved with IV administration is deeper than with inhalational (nitrous oxide), or oral routes. Although some of the drugs used are the same, they are much more effective via IV than when taken orally.
- Beneficial for patients with moderate to severe anxiety.
- Rapid onset time. Achieving sedation much quicker than oral route.
- Adjustable dosages and level of sedation “Titrate to effect”.
- Recovery time is generally reduced.
- Amnesia…One of the most popular effects of Dental IV Sedation is the amnesia-effect many of our sedative drugs have. Patients will usually have little to no memory of any unpleasant dental procedures.
- Consciousness is maintained. Unlike expensive general anesthesia where your breathing reflexes are surrendered to a machine.
Your enjoyable dental experience depends on comfort and safety. The latest technological advances in equipment and techniques will ensure your excellent dental health.
