What Is Sedation Dentistry?
If the idea of going to the dentist makes you feel anxious, you aren't alone. The staff at Presidential Dental Group understands that patients of all ages can experience dental anxiety, which is why our practice offers several different types of sedation dentistry options so you can receive the oral care you need without added stress. These sedative methods can help keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout your treatment, making your experience at our Washington, D.C. office much more pleasant. If you've been putting off necessary treatment because of dental phobia, we invite you to set up an appointment with Dr. Kami'Lah Brown at our office to learn about how sedation dentistry can make getting the care you need more comfortable for you.
How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?
The type of sedative used for your procedure will depend on the level of your anxiety, the complexity of the procedure, and your medical background. We offer a selection of sedation dentistry services at Presidential Dental Group, including:
- N2O (Nitrous Oxide): More commonly known as laughing gas, this sedative tends to create a relaxed, euphoric effect. Nitrous oxide is administered at our office using a mask that fits over your nose and mouth.
- Oral Sedation: This option is administered in the form of a pill that you take an hour before your appointment to help keep you calm and comfortable.
- IV Sedation: Intravenous sedation is a much faster option because it can deliver the sedatives directly to the bloodstream.
With all of our sedation dentistry options, you will remain conscious throughout your treatment, though afterward, you may feel as if you were asleep. With oral or IV sedation, you will need to make arrangements for a friend or family member to drive you home after your appointment, as you will still be groggy. Our office advises that you relax and keep a good water intake for the rest of the day following sedation dentistry sessions at Presidential Dental Group. You will likely be sleepy and low on energy for the rest of the day, but these feelings typically disappear within 24 hours.
