Benefits of Dental Anesthesia
Sedation For Any Treatment
Our oral sedation dentistry option allows you to feel relaxed and comfortable during your dental visit. By taking a prescribed medication orally, either an hour before or upon arrival at our office, you can experience varying levels of relaxation, depending on the type and strength of the medication. This ranges from mild relaxation to potentially falling asleep in the dental chair. However, it’s important to have a friend or family member available to drive you home after your appointment.
Administered through a nasal mask, nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” is a medication that induces relaxation in dental patients. Despite the name, patients typically feel drowsy and relaxed during their treatment. This sedation dentistry option allows patients to remain conscious and responsive throughout their care while feeling relaxed. Once treatment is complete, the nitrous oxide is turned off, and patients breathe pure oxygen through the mask until it’s removed. The sedative effects wear off quickly, enabling patients to drive themselves home after their appointment.
Local anesthesia is a type of dental anesthesia that numbs a specific area of the mouth, providing pain relief during your dental procedure. Typically administered through an injection and is commonly used for fillings, root canals, and other minor dental treatments. This sedation dentistry option allows patients to remain awake and alert during the procedure while eliminating pain and discomfort. These dental anesthesia effects wear off quickly, allowing our patients to drive themselves home after their appointment.
Say Goodbye to Dental Fear
Avoiding dental visits due to fear and anxiety can lead to ignoring dental symptoms that require attention. This can result in small dental problems becoming larger and more serious over time. By delaying treatment, patients may experience more pain, require additional treatments, and even face systemic complications. At Sitwell Dental in Saratoga Springs, NY, we offer a range of sedation dentistry options to help you feel comfortable and confident during your visit. Don’t let fear prevent you from receiving the dental care you need for a healthy smile and life!
