What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry utilizes medication to induce relaxation in patients during dental procedures. It proves beneficial for individuals who feel uneasy or anxious about dental appointments. Our aim is to ensure your comfort throughout the experience, enabling you to access the necessary care without any apprehension.

The Benefits Of Sedation Dentistry

  • Reduced anxiety: Reduced anxiety allows you to feel calm and relaxed throughout your appointment. 
  • Pain-free experience: You will experience little to no discomfort during procedures for a pain-free experience. 
  • Efficient treatment: The sedation permits longer procedures or multiple treatments in one visit.
  • Enhanced comfort: Enhanced comfort is ideal for patients with a low pain threshold or sensitive gag reflex.

The Types Of Sedation Dentistry

At Jupiter Advanced Dentistry, we offer several types of sedation to meet your needs:

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative inhaled through a mask. It helps you relax quickly and wears off just as fast. With nitrous oxide, you can still communicate with your dentist and are conscious throughout the appointment.

Oral Sedation 

This type of sedation involves taking a pill before your appointment. It induces a deeper state of relaxation but does not put you to sleep. You will still be able to follow instructions and respond to questions, but will feel drowsy and may not remember much of the procedure afterwards.

What To Expect Before & After Undergoing Sedation

Before your procedure, Dr. Schulert will discuss your sedation options and medical history to determine the best method for you. Here’s what to expect:

  • Before: Follow pre-sedation instructions, such as fasting or adjusting medications.
  • During: You will be closely monitored to ensure your safety and comfort.
  • After: Post-sedation, arrange for someone to drive you home, and plan to rest for the remainder of the day.

Is Sedation Dentistry Right For You?

Sedation dentistry is suitable for patients who:

  • Experience severe anxiety or fear about dental visits
  • Have a low pain threshold or sensitive gag reflex
  • Require extensive or multiple dental procedures

If you think sedation dentistry might be right for you, Dr. Schulert can help you determine the best option based on your needs and medical history.
