- Enteral Sedation
- Laughing Gas
- IV Sedation
- General Anesthesia
This form of sedation can be administered through a liquid capsule, and like other forms of local anesthetics, it can be combined with nitrous oxide. If your dentist offers enteral sedation, you will still be awake, but nervousness should be alleviated.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can alleviate your pain without putting you to sleep during your procedure and is not only effective but safe. Laughing gas can be administered through injection or machine, depending on your comfort level.
IV sedation is a powerful form of anesthesia that is used for deep sedation. A trained technician administers medication through an intravenous vein. After sedation, there will be some downtime as your body will need to recover from this sedation technique.
General anesthesia is a mixture of intravenous drugs along with inhaled gas. You are put into a sleep-like state to prevent you from responding to pain signals.
A trained anesthesiologist should perform this procedure and will monitor your vitals. After general anesthesia, you should take things slow, as your body will need time to recover.
