When you’re considering any type of dental treatment, including dental implants, comfort is one of your biggest concerns. Regardless of how simple the procedure is you want to feel relaxed and free of any anxiety on the big day. Not only does this help you as the patient, it also helps your implant dentist perform the procedure more quickly and effortlessly! Thanks to a wide variety of sedation options, you can safely enjoy ultimate comfort throughout your entire dental care process.
There are typically 3 different forms of sedation to choose from:
Believe it or not, dental implants are even stronger than your real teeth. Made of hospital-grade titanium, they are able to withstand just about anything. Not only does this make it easier for you to chew and smile again, it also strengthens the bone in your jaws. New bone formation secures the implant while also helping to support neighboring teeth.
Often referred to as “twilight dentistry,” IV sedation makes most patients feel as if they slept right through their entire visit – it is the deepest level of sedation available in dentistry. The medications are delivered intravenously for precise timing and enhanced relaxation.
With oral sedation, prescription strength sedatives are given approximately one hour prior to your scheduled treatment. This allows the sedative to take effect. Most people report feeling as if they are taking a light nap where they can answer simple questions but are generally unaware about what is going on around them. These sedatives are also amnesiacs, which typically leave you free of remembering anything about your treatment.
“Laughing gas” can be used alone, with local anesthesia, or alongside other sedation methods. Its quick onset and reversal make it easy to add onto just about any dental procedure!
