The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Dental sedation provides efficient treatment and comfortable care. It is easier for our patients to care for patients under sedation if they require lengthy treatments. In addition, sedation is a great dental tool for patients with:
- Fear of the dentist
- Special needs
- Dental anxiety
- Gag reflex
If you or a loved one have anxiety or require accommodation for your next visit, don’t hesitate to contact our office. We will work with you to find the right option so you can receive professional dental care.
Types of Dental Sedation in Marriottsville, MD
There are multiple options for patients who require sedation:
- Oral Conscious Sedation: As the name suggests, patients under oral conscious sedation may remain conscious during their treatment. However, they will not feel any pain. Oral conscious sedation is taken as a pill prior to treatment. Patients will need to be driven to and from their appointment because it takes time for oral conscious sedation to wear off.
- Nitrous Oxide: We mix laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, with oxygen. Nitrous oxide is delivered through a mask and takes effect quickly. This type of sedation makes patients feel calm, happy, and relaxed.
