This is lightest type of sedation. There are several ways to sedate a patient that result in anxiolysis. At A Better Smile Dental Centres
we use inhalation of nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas
Nitrous oxide is a wonderful way to reduce a patient’s anxiety because it is administered under the supervision of the dentist and can be quickly reversed when it is time for you to leave. Nitrous oxideinduces a relaxed feeling and sends you into a dreamlike state.
Deep: IV sedation
Deep sedation is the state between conscious and unconscious. During deep sedation, the patient is unable to respond to commands. This is best done with IV sedation where the sedative is directly administered into your circulatory system.
Sleep sedation dentistry with IV sedationenables even the most anxious people to undergo dental treatment. During treatment you will not experience any pain or discomfort, and when you awake after the procedure you will have no memory of the treatment. To ensure your well-being, you should arrange for a companion to take you home.
