What is sedation dentistry used for?

Sedation dentistry is used to keep patients as comfortable and relaxed as possible while they receive necessary dental treatment. This medicine can go a very long way towards reducing pain and anxiety, and it makes undergoing certain dental procedures much easier. Sedation dentistry may also be used when a patient is extremely nervous or anxious about treatment.

What is local anesthesia?

Local anesthesia is numbing medicine delivered by injection that is specifically used for managing pain during treatment. This medicine numbs the immediate area to prevent the patient from physically feeling the work being completed. A local anesthetic is strictly for managing pain, and it will not directly reduce a patient’s anxiety; however, many patients take comfort in knowing that local anesthesia will prevent most pain and discomfort.

What is laughing gas?

Laughing gas is an inhaled medicine that helps make a patient more receptive to treatment and less likely to notice any pain or discomfort. The medicine is administered by having the patient wear a special mask over their nose and then breathing in the gas. Laughing gas takes effect very quickly, and the patient should notice that any of their fears or concerns have been replaced with feelings of euphoria and well-being. We can then easily complete any necessary treatment. The effects should diminish soon after treatment is complete, and the patient will be able to continue on with their day like normal.

Love my smile by Dr. Clifton! It’s been over 15 years and everyone compliments my beautiful smile and teeth. 18 DaVinci veneers were my best option and Dr. Clifton helped me make the correct choice for a long lasting smile.
