What is Sedation Dentistry?
At New Castle Dental Associates, our team offers several methods to help patients relax during their treatment. During your first appointment, we’ll discuss the level of sedation you may need. Most people are fine with nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas, or with a topical sedative such as novacaine. Some people prefer an oral sedative, which is a pill that our dentist will prescribe for you to take before your appointment. Valium is an example of an oral sedative.
Dr. Chamish is also certified in Intravenous Sedation. The sedative is delivered through an IV and the patient will either stay awake but feel completely relaxed, or will fall asleep. Either way, the patient does not feel any pain. Many people prefer to sleep through their dental procedures because more work can be performed. Plus, it’s completely pain-free and the patient awakes with no memory of the experience.
