FAQ on Sedation Dentistry

                                             

Sedation dentistry involves using medication to help patients relax during dental treatment. While it is sometimes also known as 'sleep dentistry', patients are usually awake during sedation dentistry, except for those under general anesthesia. It's highly common for patients to feel anxious about their dental visits. This is why sleep or sedation dentistry is used to help patients feel more comfortable and at ease during dentist appointments. It helps alleviate the fear of pain, needles, noises, and smells associated with dental care.  The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near to La Marque, Galveston, and the Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB, and ROSS market complex is the best option available and affordable dentist near you.

There are several types of sedation available for dentist procedures, ranging from mild to heavy sedation. The level of sedation used will depend on the individual and the treatment being performed.

General Anesthesia 

General anesthesia is distributed in a hospital or day surgery centre, and injected in the hand or arm by a registered anesthetist. It's used to heavily sedate patients or make them lose consciousness in a deep sleep. They are then woken up once the procedure is finished.

Inhaled Minimal Sedation

Also known as laughing gas, inhaled minimal Sedation  provides a feeling of relaxation and happiness. This is a commonly used form of sedation as it takes just minutes to take effect and can be administered in doses for the desired effect depending on the patient. It also doesn't take long for patients to recover from inhaled minimal sedation.This is a great solution for patients who are experiencing minor anxiety surrounding their procedure.

Oral Sedation (Use of Medication)

This form of sedation is taken in pill form and helps relieve anxiety. The patient usually remains awake and can follow instructions from the dentist, but will often be drowsy and won't remember much about the treatment. Because of the drowsiness effect, patients are not able to drive after taking oral sedation. Oral sedation is best for patients who are experiencing minor anxiety surrounding their procedure.

Anti Anxiety Medication Through Inhalation

Also known as the 'green stick', anti anxiety medication through inhalation helps to relieve anxiety and encourage relaxation in patients.It is safe to use, even for children and pregnant women, and is great for patients for are experiencing minor anxiety before their treatment

IV Moderate Sedation

IV moderate sedation involves injecting a sedative medication that makes patients feel relaxed without falling asleep. Patients can still follow the dentist's instructions, but often don't remember a single detail of their procedure afterward. This can be done by a professional dentist in a dental practice.
