There are many treatments that can seem scary and cause anxiety. At Menlo Park Smiles, we are use sedation dentistry to make you comfortable during routine checkups, preventive and restorative dental procedures, or cosmetic dentistry treatments. We utilize FDA-approved medication to induce a calm, relaxed state.
Commong Types of Sedation Dentistry:
- Nitrous Oxide: A gas that relaxes you during the procedure. It wears off quickly, so your dentist might let you drive yourself home after the appointment.
- Oral Sedatives: You typically take them an hour or so before your appointment. You’re fully awake but less anxious, and you might feel a little sleepy and tired until it goes out of your system.
- Intravenous Sedatives: Intravenous, or IV, sedatives can put you in varying stages of consciousness. This is also known as general anesthesia and will put you into a deep sleep until it wears off.
