Do you fear going to the dentist? So many people are afraid to go to the dentist to even receive the most basic of dental procedures. Many times, that fear stems from childhood experiences or adult experiences that were often either too painful or too intrusive. That’s why sedation dentistry in Lighthouse Point offers the perfect solution for you. At Sedation Dental Spa, we aim to make you as comfortable as possible while providing the highest quality care you can receive. We want to ensure that every visit you have with us is a comfortable and pleasant experience.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry makes use of certain medications to help patients relax or even fall completely asleep during their dental treatment. At Sedation Dental Spa, your comfort is our first concern. You will experience no pain throughout the entire dental procedure. Sedation dentistry is the perfect choice for patients who require more than one visit or extensive visits, have very sensitive teeth, have a fear of needles and a low tolerance for pain.
What Types of Sedation Methods Are Used?
- Nitrous Oxide – The patient breathes in nitrous oxide (also called laughing gas) through a mask placed over your nose. The gas relaxes you so you don’t pay attention to the procedure. The amount of sedation given to you is always monitored by the dentist and his assistant.
- IV Sedation – IV Sedation is for those patients who have severe dental phobia and will have a hard time getting through the procedure. IV sedation will relax and make you sleepy so that the procedure will be painless and you will remember nothing. All sedation is strictly administered and controlled by your dentist.
- Oral Sedation techniques – oral sedation called ‘relaxation’, ‘sleep’ or ‘anxiety free’ dentistry is becoming one of the most viable options for dental patients all over the country. How it works is that dentists use a combination of sedation and anesthetic to manage your pain and keep your stress level low throughout your dental procedure. Patients may leave the office with no memory of their treatment and feel fantastic afterward. But for most patients, the most important thing is that no pain is felt whatsoever.
