Local anesthetic is typically used during any dental procedure and helps to numb the area, reducing any pain, discomfort and feeling the patient may have during the treatment. For more invasive procedures, additional sedation may be recommended.
Laughing gas sedation is the perfect option for anyone with mild dental anxiety. Laughing gas sedation is administered through a tiny face mask that is placed over the nose, mixed with oxygen. Once the treatment has been completed, the laughing gas will quickly wear off, allowing the patient to resume normal day-to-day activities.
Oral sedation may be a better option for those with more moderate dental anxiety. Oral sedation is prescribed prior to the treatment and is often an anti-anxiety type medication. Due to the fact oral sedation has a more relaxing effect and can take quite a bit of time to wear off, a ride is required to and from your appointment.
