SEDATION FOR THE NERVOUS PATIENT

Dental procedures can cause mild to severe anxiety and fear in some patients that varies from patient to patient. The looming fear of discomfort, noise or pain can trigger significant unease in young children and particularly nervous adults. Fortunately, Oasis Dental in Milton offers several safe and effective methods of sedation to minimize this anxiety.

Dr. Soordhar will mostly likely recommend conscious sedation via nitrous oxide or oral sedation. These can be administered very effectively and comfortably either in oral form or by way of inhalation.

SEDATION DENTISTRY BENEFITS PATIENTS THAT ARE:

  • Infants
  • Children who require major treatment
  • A very anxious child
  • Children that have had traumatic dental experiences (sound and smell aversion)
  • Children with a strong gag reflex
  • Children who are medically compromised or have special needs
  • Anxious Adults

NITROUS OXIDE

Nitrous Oxide is a sweet smelling, nonirritating, colorless and breathable gas which has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. Nitrous oxide is perfectly safe the patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide. The patient is able to breathe independently and remain in control of all bodily functions.

ADVANTAGES TO USING NITROUS OXIDE:

  • The degree of sedation can be altered altering the concentration levels of the nitrous oxide and how the patient breaths
  • There is minimal recovery time after the procedure has been completed – there is no “hangover” after effect
  • Nitrous oxide is not metabolized by the body, so it safe with no side effects on your body
  • Nitrous oxide provides a reduction in gagging
  • The relaxation sedation effects is obtained fairly quickly, so your anxiety is reduced rapidl
