Sedation Dentistry Options In Oklahoma City
Presently, our clinic near Moore OK offers three kinds of sedation techniques, which include:
Through nitrous oxide (laughing gas) inhalation, patients experience non-invasive and needle-free administration of sedatives. It is administered through a breathing mask (no needles) and is a gentle and effective sedation option. Most appropriate to those who fear dental tools, nitrous oxide is an option where we let our patients breathe in the nitrous oxide to reach a feeling of easiness and calmness. Nitrous oxide has been in use for decades and is a proven and successful sedation technique as an alternative to the following oral conscious sedation and IV sedation treatments.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is another needle free dental sedation technique in which the sedative is administered orally in pill form. This conscious sedation technique is simple but provides great results. Patients who suffer from gag reflexes, difficulty in controlling body movements, low pain thresholds or high dental anxiety are often amazed at the positive impact oral conscious sedation has on their basic and more complex dental treatment visits. Patients remain conscious (hence conscious sedation) during the treatment but there is a considerable comfort and tranquility experienced.
For those with intense anxiety we provide an alternative to conscious sedation and nitrous oxide, IV sedation. IV sedation (intravenous sedation) can completely calm a patient to the point where they can sleep during a procedure. The IV sedation medication is administered through a small needle in the hand or arm. Our licensed anesthesiologist will administer the IV sedation and we will constantly keep an eye on you throughout the procedure. This option is most useful for those who suffer extreme dental anxiety and severe dental phobias.
Beyond the actual administration of conscious sedation or IV sedation we go the extra mile to help our patients feel relaxed and at home. We offer warm blankets, bottled water and even soothing music upon request.
