Dental Sedation In Glendale, WI
The term “dental sedation” refers to the use of medication that is intended to either alleviate the discomfort that is associated with receiving treatment or to calm your nerves and make you feel more at ease while dental work is being performed on you. This not only improves the overall experience but also guarantees that our team can carry out their responsibilities more efficiently. Laughing gas and oral conscious sedation are both forms of dental sedation that we provide.
What is laughing gas and what does it do?
Laughing gas is Nitrous Oxide and is commonly used as a local sedation method. It’s colorless and odorless and its usefulness stems from its ability to quickly work and safely reverse its effects. It is a widely considered safe dental sedation method.
How many different kinds of anesthetics are there for dental work?
The most common types of anesthesia used are local anesthesia, IV sedation and general anesthesia.
What is the process for local anesthesia?
Local anesthesia is a numbing medication that is injected directly into the area that is to be treated—usually the gums around an affected tooth.
How does general anesthesia work?
General anesthesia produces a more profound experience that usually leaves no memory of the actual procedure. It’s typically used for more intensive procedures like tooth extraction, dental implants or other surgical procedures and the patient is unconscious during the process.
