Is Sedation Dentistry Right for Me?

If you experience strong negative emotions when thinking about going to the dentist, sedation dentistry should help. We may also recommend it for patients who suffer from a sensitive gag reflex, who cannot become properly numb through local anesthesia, or who have trouble sitting still for long periods of time. We will always review your medical history with you in full in order to confirm that sedation is a safe option for you or your loved ones.

What are the Types of Sedation Dentistry?

  • Nitrous Oxide – Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a relatively mild sedative that we will administer to you through a mask that fits over your nose. Within a few minutes of inhaling the gas, you should start to more content and comfortable while still remaining perfectly aware of what’s going on around you. Many patients enjoy undergoing nitrous oxide because the effects wear off very quickly after your treatment, which means you won’t have to contend with any extended downtime. Instead, you can return to your regular schedule right away.
  • Oral Sedation – With oral sedation, our team will provide you with a prescription for medication as well as instructions on when to take it before your visit is set to begin. By the time you meet with our Dayton team, you should feel deeply relaxed. When undergoing this type of sedation, you will need an escort to drive you both to and from our office.

You can trust in the Rahn Dental Group team to take care of you throughout your appointment with sedation and ensure that your treatment is of the highest quality possible!
