What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry has been around for over 100 years, and has continued to evolve over the last 40 years as more options are made available to patients. In order to perform sedation, dentists are required to become accredited and complete additional training. However, its widespread acceptance and use has come about more slowly than medical sedation.

While it is common practice to be sedated by doctors for medical procedures, for some time there has been the misconception that routine dental work is not uncomfortable enough to justify the use of sedation. Fortunately, dental sedation is now used worldwide. It has proven to be a safe and effective option for a variety of patients and procedures. Our Dentist at Lakefront Family Dental will be glad to help you with any questions you might have about Sedation Dentistry to put you at ease. 

Depending on the extent of the work being done and the needs of the individual patient, we offer different methods of sedation:

Nitrous Oxide ~ Also known as inhalation sedation or “laughing gas,” this is one step up from the oral sedative. A mask is placed over the patient’s nose, and the flow level is adjusted by the dentist until the patient is comfortable. One advantage of this method is that as soon as the dental work is complete, the patient receives 100% oxygen and the feeling of sedation is gone within a few minutes.

How do I know if sedation is right for me?

Talking with your dentist is the first step in deciding if sedation dentistry is for you. Whether you are afraid of needles, have trouble getting numb, or are simply anxious when it comes to dental work, you and Dr. Zemskova can discuss your options.
