Pain-free care is possible with dental sedation. Sedation is a part of dental care for patients who require lengthy procedures and oral surgery. Our sedation dentistry options in our Port Charlotte, FL office help patients feel comfortable and relaxed. Sedation allows patients to receive dental care without feeling pain or discomfort.
The Benefits of Dental Sedation
Dental sedation allows our team to work more efficiently and helps patients receive dental care without discomfort. Sedation treatment offers:
- Reduced gag reflex
- Safe treatment
- Quick recovery
- Comfortable dental treatment
Patients who have dental fear or anxiety also benefit from sedation. Dental sedation is one of the tools we can use to calm patients, especially if they fear dental treatment or pain. We accommodate our patients and recommend calming breathing techniques, bringing headphones to listen to music, and bringing loved ones during appointments. You may also contact us to request additional accommodations.
Sedation Dentistry in Port Charlotte, FL
We provide nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation for our patients. Our office will consider your dental and medical history before suggesting a sedation method. For instance, we may recommend oral conscious sedation over nitrous oxide if patients have difficulty breathing.
One of the most common sedation methods is nitrous oxide, a colorless gas. Before treatment, we will deliver the nitrous oxide through a mask over the nose and mouth. The patient will breathe normally and quickly begin to feel relaxed. Nitrous oxide is also called laughing gas because patients may feel happy or lightheaded under this type of sedation.
Oral conscious sedation is taken as a prescribed pill before treatment. It will take time for the pill to take effect, so we recommend that patients receive transportation to and from their appointments. Patients will remain conscious during this sedation to respond to the dentist. Additionally, while patients may feel sensations during their procedure, they will not feel pain.
