What To Expect
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to your first visit.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is one of the most common types of sedation dentistry used today. This gas is combined with oxygen and inhaled through a mask throughout the procedure.
Nitrous oxide is an ideal form of sedation, as your dentist can control your sedation levels throughout the process and it wears off almost immediately once the procedure is over. Patients who opt for nitrous oxide are able to drive themselves home after their procedure.
Moderate Conscious Sedation
Moderate conscious sedation is a type of sedation in which you are administered a drug that keeps you conscious for the entire procedure, although you will not remember it afterwards.
This type of sedation ensures that you are awake and able to respond to stimuli throughout the process, but you won’t feel any pain or anxiety. Depending on the level of sedation, you may need to be driven home by a responsible adult after your procedure is over.
If you have any questions about sedation dentistry, give our Shallotte or Leland, NC office a call to talk to one of our helpful staff members today.
