Benefits of Different Types of Sedation Dentistry

  • NuCalm

NuCalm offers an innovative approach to sedation dentistry. The NuCalm procedure states that the patient should be given a supplement or cream to help the body relax. Headphones are also administered to provide a calming music to slow your anxious brain and induce a feeling of sleepiness. Lastly, light blocking glasses are provided to signal to your brain that it is time to sleep.

  • IV Moderate Sedation

IV moderate sedation will help you get comfortable, but you will likely be awake. You will understand questions the doctor is asking and be able to answer as well as follow directions. This level of sedation is normally used when your doctor needs you to be involved in the procedure.

  • Inhaled Minimal Sedation

Inhaled Minimal Sedation consist of the passage of gases to the cardiovascular system via the lungs. In dentistry, inhalation sedation is the same as the use of nitrous oxide/oxygen. Nitrous oxide/oxygen has an extensive history of safety and in providing conscious sedation to the anxious patient.

  • Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is easy to administer as the doctor will prescribe a pill for you to remain calm during your appointment. The medication can help you to feel sleepiness and may even result in your falling asleep in the dental chair. However, if you choose oral sedation for your appointment it is required that you have an escort to and from your dental appointment.

  • General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is recommended for patients who have severe anxiety. General Anesthesia can encourage you to fall in to a sleep-like state during your dental procedure. We work with board certified anesthesiologists to effectively and safely administer your anesthesia and monitor you during your procedure.
