Sedation dentistry is an option for patients who suffer from mild to severe dental anxiety. Some patients are too scared to undergo procedures even though they know they are putting their oral health at risk. You don’t have to compromise your oral health because sedation dentistry in Pompano Beach will keep you calm and relaxed while in your dental chair.
There are different levels of sedation dentistry. The level of sedation you’ll get will be based on your needs. Minimal sedation is usually given through nitrous oxide (laughing gas). In this form of sedation, you’ll be conscious but relaxed.
Moderate sedation is when you’re awake, but you won’t remember much of the procedure. Deep sedation is when you are semi-conscious.
Generally, sedation dentistry is safe. But, just like any other procedure, it also comes with its fair share of risks depending on the level of sedation you’ll receive. To help you feel at ease, we suggest you ask your dentist about the pros and cons of sedation dentistry to give you peace of mind and to help ease your anxiety. However, sedation dentistry is backed up by years of evidence-based research.
