What to Talk About With Your Sedation Dentist
IV sedation is for the high fear patient. This type of sedation can only be offered by dentists trained and licensed in the state of Florida for conscious sedation. Some patients with long dental appointments also opt for this type of sedation to make the appointments more pleasant. The licensed dentist has more control with the IV route than with the oral sedation delivery. Medicines are delivered through an IV line placed in the arm. Dr. Sanchez has sedated many patients that travel from central and south Florida. A comprehensive exam is necessary previous to the sedation appointment to determine dental needs and medical status of each patient.
Pills are taken orally to relief light to severe fear and anxiety in patients. Any dentist is able to prescribe these medications as long as they follow the strict guidelines set by the American Dental Association. The patient gets to be in a very relaxed state during the dental procedures.
Nitrous oxide gas (laughing gas) is used with patients who have light to medium fear and anxiety of dental treatments. This procedure has being safely used for over a century. The patient is able to go home by themselves since the effects are vanished a couple of minutes after the removal of the nasal mask.
