You Won’t Be Out Cold! Sedation Dentistry in Toms River

Sedation Dentistry Jackson

Does the sound of a dentist’s drill make your heart pound? Does the mere thought of dental work give you sweaty palms? If so, then sedation dentistry at Rotem Dental Care in Toms River may be just for you.

Many men and women facing dental work have chosen to use sedation. The terms ‘sleep dentistry’ and ‘oral conscious sedation’ are frequently used interchangeably, but they are not identical. Let’s look at the three main types of sedation used in dentistry.

Nitrous Oxide
The first level uses nitrous oxide, or ‘laughing gas’ as it is commonly called. Nitrous oxide has been used in cosmetic dental offices for many years because it is safe and effective. It goes to work at the first inhalation, relaxes the patient during the treatment, but wears off quickly after the mask is pulled off. If you need a little help to get through dental care, but don’t want to be knocked out cold, nitrous may be the best choice.

Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral sedatives don’t start working as swiftly as nitrous oxide, but they help most patients achieve a deeper level of tranquility. These medications, however, do not usually bring about complete unconsciousness. Thus, oral sedatives and nitrous oxide are considered ‘conscious’ sedation. Two of the most common sedatives are diazepam and triazolam.

IV Sedation
IV sedation uses medications similar to those used in surgery and results in true ‘sleep dentistry.’ Most patients are oblivious to what is occurring in their mouth. IV sedation is often used for procedures such as root canals, wisdom teeth extractions, and multi-procedure smile redesigns. (The sedation wears off shortly after the procedure, so you won’t need a handsome prince’s kiss to wake you up. You will, however, need a ride home.)
