Laughing Gas And Conscious Sedation In Toms River
Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, is the answer to over 35 million Americans’ fears and anxieties about visiting a dentist. If you have any anxiety about dental procedures, you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry at our Toms River location. We’re sure to provide many different sedation options so you can pick the one best suited to your individual needs.
Sedation Dentistry Options
A variety of conscious and unconscious sedation methods are available to you at Rotem Dental Care. They include:
- Oral conscious sedation: Oral medications such as Valium can help you relax, especially during long procedures. You may take these medications in the office or before you come to your appointment. We’ll prescribe you a medication that’s best for you based on your medical history and the nature of the procedure.
- Intravenous sedation: If you have a sensitive gag reflex or difficulty getting numb with dental injections, you could take advantage of our intravenous sedation dentistry.
- Laughing gas: With laughing gas, also called nitrous oxide, you’ll be awake during the entire procedure but feel nothing. This method of conscious sedation is administered through a breathing mask and helps you feel calm and comfortable while we go to work.
- Nap dentistry: If you’d rather snooze straight through your dental appointment, then nap dentistry is the sedation option for you. With nap dentistry, we’re also able to condense several procedures and appointments into one, so you’re saving time while sound asleep!
