Transforming Dental Experiences with Sedation Dentistry

At Rosemont Dental Center, we believe that dental care should be a calm and positive experience. With sedation dentistry, we ensure that even the most anxious patients can have a comfortable and relaxed dental visit.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It's often referred to as "sleep dentistry," though this isn't entirely accurate as most patients remain awake, except for those under general anesthesia.

Types of Sedation Options We Offer

  • Inhaled Sedation: Often known as "laughing gas," this involves breathing nitrous oxide combined with oxygen through a mask. It helps patients relax and wears off quickly.
  • Oral Sedation: Ranging from minimal to moderate, this involves taking a pill. Most people become drowsy but remain awake.
  • IV Sedation: Sedative drugs are administered through a vein, allowing it to work more quickly. This method allows the dentist to adjust the sedation level continuously.
  • General Anesthesia: Patients are entirely unconscious.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

  • Alleviates dental anxiety and fear.
  • Enables a more comfortable dental experience.
  • Often allows dentists to perform multiple treatments in one sitting.
  • Suitable for patients with a low pain threshold or severe gag reflex.
  • Provides an option for those with special needs or certain medical conditions.
