When Sedation is the Best Option

Sedation may be recommended for a number of reasons, related to either the patient or the procedure. Some dental procedures can be uncomfortable and sedation helps to reduce discomfort during the procedure. In other cases, the procedure is relatively painless, but the patient experiences fear of the dentist.

Sedation can be helpful for patients who are:

  • Avoiding visits to the dentist, due to fear
  • Dislike or fear the sound or smell of the dental drill
  • Have trouble with local anesthesia, Novocain, or other numbing agents
  • Have a strong gag reflex
  • Ave a compromised medical condition

In addition to the above patients, sedation offers benefits for patients who need extensive dental work. The use of sedation dentistry in West Palm Beach allows our dentists to complete more work in one visit, which can reduce the number of visits required to get the procedures you need completed.

Sedation with Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide (also called laughing gas) is effective for calming jitters in patients who are nervous or fearful of dental treatment, but able to receive treatment in a normal dental setting. The gas is inhaled during the procedure to help calm your nerves. Nitrous oxide is extremely safe when used under the supervision of a trained dental professional. Oxygen is given after the procedure to reverse the effects and help the patient return to normal activities.
