Inhaled sedation is an excellent option for many patients because it is practical and quick acting. Patients are quickly put under the effects of this sedative gas as it starts working within seconds of being combined with oxygen breathed through the nose.
For patients with extreme anxiety, IV sedation may be the best option. It works quickly and allows the patient to drift in and out of consciousness throughout the procedure. The patient will remain awake and able to respond to the doctor’s instructions when necessary, but they will have no memory of the process afterward.
Sedation dentistry is safe, effective, and reliable at helping you get through your dental visit with minimal stress or anxiety. For the best dental care, visit Riverside Tooth Co at 6886 Indiana Ave Suite B, Riverside 92506, or call (951) 686-2565.
