RELAXED DENTAL PROCEDURES WITH SEDATION DENTIST IN SHERWOOD PARK

Nowadays, sedation has become an important part of invasive dental treatments. It helps to calm down the nerves and put you at ease during any dental procedure. For those who feel anxiety or nervousness at the sight of dental tools, sedation can be very helpful.

Emerald Hills Dental Centre’s sedation dentists in Sherwood Park can help you reduce pain and anxiety related to dental treatments, like root canals and tooth extractions. We have experienced dentists who can recommend the correct type of sedative, considering your age, health, and the nature of the dental procedure. We understand your anxiety and make sure that our patients feel calm and relaxed before we start dental procedures.

UNDERSTANDING SEDATION DENTISTRY

Sedation dentistry is safe if administered by a licensed healthcare provider. It has no remarkable side effects, which makes it popular among patients and dentists. The benefits of dental sedation in carrying out the dental procedure are:

  • Relaxation to the patient during a procedure.

  • Feeling comfortable in the dentist’s chair means the patient’s cooperation.

  • Control of patients’ movement helps the dentist to carry out the procedure.

  • Help in controlling the gag reflex.

At Emerald Hills Dental Centre, the patients get screened for possible drug interactions and medical conditions before administering any sedative. During dental procedures, we monitor the patient for oxygen levels, blood pressure, and heart rate.

Sedation is administered based on factors including the level of anxiety, the length of the dental procedure, the patient’s health history and personal preference.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF SEDATIONS

We offer two types of sedation -  nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation.

  • Nitrous oxide or laughing gas: It is inhaled through a mask, and starts its calming effect within three to five minutes. The dentist can control the amount of sedation and dosages throughout the procedure. Once the treatment is over, pure oxygen is given to flush the nitrous oxide out of your system. Unlike oral or IV sedation, laughing gas leaves the system quickly so the patient can drive home after the procedure.
     

  • Oral conscious sedation: This is given in pill form or syrup to children about an hour before the procedure. Oral conscious sedation makes the patient numb to feel pain or even fall asleep but conscious enough to communicate if necessary. The side effects of oral sedation include temporarily dazed memory and motor skills, and thus advised to bring a friend or family member to accompany you home after the procedure.

WHO CAN BE RECOMMENDED TO HAVE SEDATION DENTISTRY?

Sedation dentistry can be administered safely to patients of all ages, including children, old and those with special needs. A moderate level of sedative is administered, either oral or nitrous gas, to create a short-term insensitivity to pain without losing consciousness.

Dentists often recommend sedation dentistry for patients who:

  • Need complex dental procedures.

  • Fearful of visiting the dentist.

  • Have overly sensitive gag reflexes.

  • Fear of needles (aichmophobia).

  • Have extreme teeth sensitivity.

  • Anxious while sitting in the dental chair.

  • Difficulty controlling movements.

  • Special needs include physical, cognitive, or behavioural.
