Dental Sedation Reseda

Dental Sedation ResedaDental sedation has made office procedures easier than ever for dental patients. Reasons for choosing sedation vary, but patients often benefit from the anxiety relief and physical relaxation that this service provides. Moreover, sedation can be used in virtually any procedure depending on the eligibility of the patient. Below is a deeper look at why Reseda patients might opt for sedation dentistry and what options they may be offered.

Patients Benefiting from Sedation Dentistry

Dental phobia, developmental disorders, and movement disorders can make dental sedation useful. When fear of dentistry is severe, patients may postpone or even completely avoid dental check-ups and necessary restorations until pain compels them to visit. At that point, treatment may be more extensive in terms of time and money. Furthermore, extractions may be necessary after the teeth and gums have been so badly neglected. Autism is an example of a developmental disorder that can make treatment intolerable except when sedation is used. Conditions such as cerebral palsy, which is characterized by involuntary movement, can also make sedation dentistry essential.

Types of Sedation Available at Our Office

Reseda patients may be offered different types of dental sedation when they visit our dentist in Northridge. Inhaled, oral, and IV sedation are the three main options. Here, you can read an overview of each category.

Inhaled Sedation

This sedation is mild and provided in the form of a gas, nitrous oxide, which patients inhale as part of a mix with oxygen, through a mask strapped over their nose. The gas starts working quickly but stops shortly after it’s turned off. As a result, patients are able to drive safely almost right away.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives are given before treatment starts so it has time to take effect. The sedation is stronger than with nitrous oxide, but it also lasts for some time afterwards. This means that patients must have a ride home back to Reseda for safety.

IV Sedation

Intravenous dental sedation is injected into a vein, and is stronger than both oral and inhaled sedation. Like oral sedation, the IV type makes safe driving impossible afterwards. Therefore, a ride home is required.
