Woman getting sedation dentistry work done.

Going to the dentist is fearful for many people. These worries are so common that they affect 36% of the population.

Out of worry, most people avoid going to the dentist to deal with the most pressing oral issues. These actions make things worse for your dental health and can cause greater problems down the road.

Modern dentistry is making things much easier through what is known as sedation dentistry. We look at sedation dentistry in Lighthouse Point and the different options available.

How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

Sedation dentistry is using different forms of medication to help you relax during the dental procedure. We typically use different drugs that will minimize your pain and keep you calm. Some of the most notable are

  • Valium
  • Halcion
  • Zaleplon
  • Lorazepam
  • Midazolam
  • Nitrous oxide
  • Meperidine
  • Butorphanol
  • Nalbuphine
  • Pentazocine

These drugs will help you to relax and alleviate your stress during the procedure.

At Sedation Dental Spa, we use the latest techniques and practices to help reduce your stress levels. We understand how you feel about going to the dentist and want to make everything easy for you.

Minimal Sedation

Minimal sedation is when we are using the least amount of medication that wears off quickly. Typically, during these procedures, you are breathing in what is known as nitrous oxide or laughing gas.

We control the amount you receive and you are aware of what is happening by placing a mask over your nose. The gas helps you to relax and it wears off quickly.

Sedation Dental Spa has five-star reviews from our patients for our professionalism, care, and experience. We make the process easy and treat you like you are a member of our family. We are the best at sedation dentistry in Lighthouse Point.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves taking a pill such as Halcion or valium about an hour before the procedure. The medication makes you drowsy, but you are awake for everything.

If you are seeking moderate sedation, we will give you a larger dosage. You will become groggy enough to fall asleep during the procedure. We can awaken you with a gentle shake after everything is finished.

Sedation Dental Spa has offices in Lighthouse Point and Miramar to conveniently serve you. We understand how you feel and want to make the experience stress-free.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is when you receive medication through an injection. The medication takes effect faster and you feel a rapid decrease in stress.

  • We can adjust these levels, so you will fall asleep and not wake up until the medication wears off.
  • Another option is to give you just enough to where you are not completely out and can be awakened by shaking you.

Regardless of the medication, we use local anesthetics to reduce the pain in areas we are working.

Sedation Dental Spa knows what to do to decrease the stress and pain from any procedure.
