What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation involves using a variety of techniques to help patients feel more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine whether a dental sedation option is right for you.
Our team at Demmings Dental Group will do everything we can to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental appointments. Along with offering sedation options, we are committed to working at your pace, taking breaks when required and providing calm reassurance as needed.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Inhaled through the nose and mouth, nitrous oxide can be used to calm patients while they remain awake and are able to communicate during the procedure. It also tends to lessen anxiety, increase pain threshold and reduce gag reflex.
General anesthesia is a controlled state of unconsciousness that eliminates awareness, movement and discomfort during dental treatment. Complex treatments can be completed while you are asleep in one appointment.
