Learning to control fear is one of the hardest challenges mankind has to deal with. Some people choose to be overpowered by fear because it’s less stressful when you just succumb to it. Luckily, advancements in technology found a solution that addresses dental fear and it’s called sedation dentistry in Pompano Beach.
There are different levels of dental sedation – minimal, moderate, deep, and general anesthesia. Your dentist will suggest the level of sedation that’s suitable for your needs. Minimal sedation is when you are fully awake but completely relaxed.
Moderate sedation is when you are conscious but you may not have much memory of the procedure. Deep sedation is when you are on the brink of consciousness but you can still be awakened.
General sedation is when you are entirely asleep.
An initial consultation with your dentist will help determine what type of sedation works best for you. Inhaled minimal sedation is administered via an oxygen mask while you inhale nitrous oxide.
Oral sedation can be minimal or moderate. Minimal is when you are given a relaxant an hour before your treatment. For moderate sedation, you’ll be given a pill with a larger dose.
IV sedation is administered through your vein. It works faster than oral sedation.
It’s worth mentioning that sedation dentistry is not for everyone. Only patients with overwhelming fear are best suited to take sedatives.
