What Kinds of Sedation Dentistry Do You Offer?
Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that is breathed in through the nose. After a few minutes, patients should start to experience feelings of calmness and contentment. At the end of your appointment, the effects wear off quickly as well, resulting in minimal downtime.
Oral conscious sedation
You’ll be prescribed a sedative to take at a certain time before your appointment is set to begin. Once the medication takes effect, patients should enter a deep state of relaxation; they may not even remember their procedure once it’s completed. You will need a trusted friend or family member to bring you both to and from our Frisco location.
Sedation is often used to help calm a patient mentally, as well as shield them from any physical pain. With IV sedation, the actual sedative is administered through a painless injection in the arm. After a few moments, a patient will feel a warm, relaxing sensation throughout their entire body. They will still be conscious and able to follow Dr. Carnow’s commands, but many patients leave the procedure with no memory of it. If you are nervous about any procedure you are about to have, be sure to ask Dr. Carnow about sedation so he can help you.
