What do dentists use for sedation?

Dental sedation in Corona, CA is an excellent way to relax your nerves. It is used to treat dental phobia but is also a perfect choice for patients undergoing invasive or multiple treatments.

First, your sedation dentist in Corona, CA talks to you about the choices, and then we take a health history to learn whether it is a safe and viable option for you.

Our sedation dentistry options include:

  • Nitrous oxide—Nitrous oxide, commonly called laughing gas, is administered through a nose mask. It has no lingering side effects, and the relaxed and detached feeling wears off immediately following treatment.
  • Oral sedation—Oral sedation is a pill given before treatment. With this pill, you may only recall bits and pieces of your dental visit. If you choose oral sedation, you’ll need transportation from a friend or family member because driving is prohibited.
  • IV Sedation—IV sedation is the most powerful option, so you’ll likely not remember your procedure. With IV sedation—like oral sedation—you’ll need a ride home from your treatment.

Your dentist provides all aftercare instructions following sedation dentistry. Be sure to follow these directions for the best results.
