By taking a small dosage of medication before your visit or having it administered at the dental office. Laughing gas is available at our office if you do not want to take medication orally or have intravenous sedation.

Reasons to Undergo Sedation Dentistry

If you have a fear or anxiety of seeing the dentist or being in the dental office, have a poor gag reflex, have sensitive teeth, or have difficulty staying still for long periods of time, then you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry.

Many patients claim that they feel nothing when sedated and have little to no recollection of any procedures performed while under conscious sedation. There are different forms of sedation which vary in the way they are administered and how they function.

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas can help you feel relaxed. It is administered by a small face mask which you breathe from a little before and throughout your treatment. Within minutes of removing the mask, the laughing gas will wear off. This makes it the ideal sedation for people who have to go back to their daily routine after certain dental procedures.

Oral Sedation

If you feel a sense of fear or anxiety about visiting the dentist, prescription medications may help relax you before your appointment. To reduce your anxiety, ask Martin Orro DDS, which medications are available and appropriate to you. Be ready to have a ride to take you home since some medication may take longer than others to wear off.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is often referred to as twilight sedation. Allowing you to feel like you are in a dream, IV sedation allows you to remain conscious and able to follow instructions while keeping you comfortable.
