There are generally four type of Sedation Dentistry,
- Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral Conscious Sedation is a form of minimal sedation. It combines sedatives and pain relievers as a tool to prevent discomfort during routine dental treatments. In this type, the patient is capable to communicate with a dentist and can respond to the questions or feelings.
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous Oxide is also known as “laughing gas”. It is a commonly used and minimal form of sedation. It produces the sense of euphoria and light-headedness and relieves the patient from anxiety or phobia. At the end of dental treatment, dentist administers oxygen to the patient for five to ten minutes, flushing the lungs of any residual gas, causing the effects of the gas to dissipate so the patient can continue about their day normally.
- Intravenous (IV) Sedation
Intravenous (IV) Sedation is commonly known as “sleepy” or “twilight” dentistry. In this form, the dentist enters a dose of sedatives through an IV into the bloodstream directly which make the patient feel the effect quickly. It is used for the patient with a high level of a phobia. Similar to Oral Conscious sedation, a patient can respond during the dental treatment.
- General Anesthesia
General Anesthesia is completely opposed to other sedation forms. It makes patient unconscious during dental treatments by completely putting them to sleep. It is received as an injection or through gas inhalation as per the need of the patient.
