Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Many people opt for sedation dentistry since it allows them to complete their treatments with ease. Often, it feels like shutting your eyes and opening them, with the procedure completed in the blink of an eye! The process will be handled by a fully qualified and trained anesthesiologist, who will also obtain a thorough medical history to better understand your health before starting the sedation procedure.
Any patient that receives general anesthesia may experience slight, temporary side effects such as dizziness and nausea. As your trusted provider of sedation dentistry, you can clarify all your doubts with our expert team at Wyndham Dental.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

Whatever concern or phobia you may have, there are options available to make your dental visit a stress-free experience. Depending on your medical history and dental treatment needed, there will be a form of sedation dentistry available for you.

General Anaesthesia

This is the best option for individuals who have severe dental phobia or for older individuals who need complex work done, but with limited time. It’s also a great option for individuals who need wisdom teeth extraction.

Laughing Gas

Also called Nitrous Oxide, laughing gas provides a milder form of sedation. This is an ideal option for patients who dislike needles, as it is delivered with the use of a mask. It cannot be used on individuals who suffer from respiratory obstruction or severe colds as the anaesthesia depends on the person’s ability to breathe in the gas through the mask.

Oral Sedation

This can usually be taken in the form of a pill or liquid. It can be combined with other forms of sedation, such as laughing gas. With this sedation, you might be awake but your nervous feelings will slowly dissipate.
