When administered by a trained professional, sedation dentistry is very safe for children, teenagers, and adults. At Dental Care of Corona, we offer conscious sedation methods, such as nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), oral sedation, and IV sedation.
Is Sedation Dentistry Right for Me?
Each of the above sedation methods has unique effects, and not every patient is a good candidate for each sedation method. Everyone responds differently to sedation, but your dentist can determine which sedation method is best for you by:
- Assessing your specific situation, treatment needs, and comfort levels
- Providing a thorough examination
- Reviewing your medical and oral health histories
- Reviewing any medications you may be taking
Generally, laughing gas is considered the least invasive and safest for most patients, including children. Oral sedation is essentially an anti-anxiety medication and is safe for many patients. IV sedation, also known as sleep sedation, makes patients semi-conscious and is safe for many patients.
