• Oral or Nitrous Sedation Dentistry in Lakeland, FL
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation Dentistry is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy, and calm state through the use of sedatives. Sedation dentistry has evolved to be even more conducive to a relaxing experience. Patients have alternatives to the traditional modalities of inhalation (nitrous oxide or “laughing gas”) and IVs, such as those offering a “no needle” (meaning, no injection) approach that many people find more appealing.
Oral sedation dentistry is now the most common technique used in the United States and Canada to quell patient fears. The technique is easy and requires no needles. Best of all, the medications create such a comfortable experience that most patients do not remember the visit (it is as if they slept through the entire treatment). In reality, oral sedation dentistry maintains a level of consciousness in the patient for safety and cooperation.
