Various dentists provide various coping methods for their patients in order to alleviate any pain or concern of treatment. Some of which include…
Laughing gas is offered by some dental professionals, and allows you to feel more relaxed during a dental treatment without losing a sense of control, yet while still enjoying the comfort of painlessness.
Intravenous (IV) Sedation is a more advanced version of this, and is also called Conscious Sedation or “twilight sleep”. You are given medications to make you relaxed and drowsy directly into your bloodstream.
A small plastic catheter is introduced into a vein in your arm or hand, similar to having a blood test, and you are carefully monitored throughout the sedation. As with laughing gas, IV Sedation allows for some awareness so you are able to follow commands, but you are in an “altered state” which is usually perceived as quite pleasant.
Local anesthesia is also used, thereby eliminating any discomfort for the surgery.
IV Sedation is a very popular option to significantly reduce anxiety, and quickly passes time, also helping you to forget most of the procedure – all at a very reasonable cost, and is available at our Burnaby Sedation Dental and Langley Sedation Dental offices.
A general anesthetic (GA) is when you are “put completely to sleep”. Conducted by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist in an operating room environment, there is neither awareness nor recollection of your dental procedure.
GA is available at our Burnaby Sedation Dental office, and you can find more information by visiting www.sedationdental.ca
