Sedation Dentistry | Dental Library

Sedation dentistry and sleep dentistry help treat patients with dental phobias, anxieties, and fear. There are a number of various sedation and sleep methods, including administering oral sedation, a pill, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and intravenous sedation to deliver a combination of methods.

Prior to anesthesia, do not drink or eat anything at least 8 hours before surgery. You will need someone to accompany you to the surgery and drive you home afterward. Do not wear any jewelry, contact lenses, or dentures. Also, discuss current medications you are taking with your dentist to ensure that they are approved prior to surgery.

During your time under sedation, your overall health is monitored to ensure your safety. You will be assured that your procedure will be free of stress and pain, while also receiving the best possible dental care.
