Looking for a Sedation Dentist?

Are you looking for a sedation dentist?

Sedation numbs you to pain. In dentistry, different levels of sedation are used.

There are three levels of sedation: local, moderate, and general.

Firstly, local sedation, like lidocaine, numbs a limited area.

Secondly, a gas mask delivers moderate sedation. You’ll feel loopy with limited awareness, but you’ll still be awake.

Finally, general sedation, also called general anesthesia, is either applied intravenously or through a gas mask. A dentist will use gas. This is because the recovery is easier than with IV sedation. Also, it’s easier to wake up the patient if there is a medical issue during treatment.

Sedation dentistry helps patients who are anxious at the dentist and/or need a lot of work done.

The patient’s comfort level, as well as the experience of the dentist, determines the level of sedation.

Most dentists only use moderate or local sedation. This is because because general sedation requires dedicated attention from an anesthesiologist to make sure the patient remains safe while asleep.

At Believe Dental, we offer all levels of sedation, including general sedation. We have trained and board-certified anesthesiologists on staff.
