Fast Facts About Sedation Dentistry

History Of Laughing Gas: Laughing gas (nitrous oxide) has been used in dentistry since the 1800s.

Driving Home: You can drive yourself home after receiving laughing gas. But if you have oral sedation or IV sedation, you’ll need someone else to drive you home.

Laughing Gas For Cleanings: Laughing gas can be used for dental cleanings, to help you relax.

Benefits Of Sedation: The best benefit of sedation is that it allows people to receive dental treatment, in a comfortable way, that can lower their anxiety.

Trouble Getting Numb: If you have trouble getting numb, sedation can be an alternative to Novocain.

Sedation Dentists: Not all dentists in the Phoenix area offer sedation dentistry, and few offer all three types of sedation.

Dental Anxiety: Dental anxiety and fear is far more common than you might think, and sedation can offer an effective solution.

Pediatric Sedation Dentistry: Depending on the age of children and the dental procedure, sedation can be an option.

Sedation Covered By Insurance: Some forms of sedation, for certain types of procedure, are covered by dental insurance plans.

Strong Gag Reflex: If you have a strong gag reflex, sedation can either relax you (laughing gas), make you less conscious of the procedure (oral sedation), or make you unconscious (IV sedation).

Dental Health And Overall Health: It’s important to regain and maintain good dental health, because poor dental health has been tied to general health problems, such as strokes, heart problems, and diabetes.
