Sedation Dentistry is having dental procedures completed without fear or anxiety. There are different types of sedation dentistry available. Your dentist in Watertown will decide which sedation product is the best for you and your situation.
Types of Sedation
Monitored Anesthesia Care - One type of sedation dentistry is called Monitored anesthesia care (MAC). This type of sedation mixes oral sedation with a local anesthetic infiltration or nerve blocks. This procedure requires an anesthesiologist to administer the drugs and to watch the welfare of the patient during the procedure.
Oral Sedation – Oral sedation can range from minimal to moderate depending on your needs. For minimal sedation a pill is taken one hour prior to the procedure. Typically, the medication is Halcion which is similar to Valium however your dentist may decide to use something different. This pill will make you drowsy but you will still be awake. A larger dose will be given for moderate sedation. Large doses assist in helping patients sleep during the procedure.
Nitrous Oxide – Also known as ‘laughing gas’ this method combines nitrous oxide with oxygen that is administered through the nose via a mask that is placed over your nose. This sedation allows you to relax and remain calm throughout your procedure. You may be able to drive yourself home after this procedure.
