General Dentistry Patient

Sedation dentistry is a type of dental service that is designed to help patients who experience anxiety or fear about dental procedures. This service can include several different types of sedation options, including nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas), oral sedatives, and intravenous (IV) sedation.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective method of sedation that can help patients relax during dental procedures. The gas is administered through a small mask placed over the patient's nose, and it wears off quickly after the procedure is complete.

Oral Sedatives

Oral sedatives are another option for patients who experience anxiety or fear about dental procedures. These medications are typically taken prior to the appointment and can help the patient feel relaxed and calm during the procedure.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is a deeper form of sedation that is typically reserved for patients who require extensive dental work or have severe anxiety about dental procedures. During IV sedation, medication is administered directly into the patient's bloodstream through an IV line, which helps to induce a state of deep relaxation.

Regardless of the type of sedation used, patients who undergo sedation dentistry will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult who can transport them home safely after the appointment. The dentist will also provide detailed instructions about what to expect during the appointment and how to prepare for the sedation. If you are experiencing anxiety or fear about dental procedures, sedation dentistry may be a good option to help you get the dental care you need.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of common dental problems. General dentists are trained to provide a wide range of services that are essential for maintaining good oral health.

Why do I need general dentistry?

General dentistry is essential for maintaining good oral health and preventing dental problems. Regular dental exams and cleanings are an important part of general dentistry because they allow your dentist to detect and treat dental problems early, when they're easier and less expensive to treat. Here are some reasons why you need general dentistry:

  1. Preventing dental problems: Regular dental exams and cleanings can help prevent dental problems like cavities and gum disease. Your dentist can remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to gum disease if left untreated. They can also check for early signs of tooth decay and recommend treatment before the problem becomes more severe.

  2. Saving money: Preventive dental care, like regular exams and cleanings, can save you money in the long run. By detecting and treating dental problems early, you can avoid more costly treatments like root canals or extractions.

  3. Maintaining good oral health: General dentistry is essential for maintaining good oral health. Your dentist can provide education and guidance on how to properly care for your teeth and gums. They can also recommend a healthy diet and lifestyle habits that promote good oral health.

  4. Restoring damaged teeth: General dentistry services like dental fillings, crowns, and root canals can help restore damaged teeth and prevent further damage. This can help you maintain good oral health and prevent tooth loss.

  5. Replacing missing teeth: General dentistry services like dentures and partials can help replace missing teeth, which can improve your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
