Calm, relaxed, and comfortable are probably not the first words that come to mind when you envision your visit to the dentist. The Dental Bar goes to great lengths to ensure that our patients leave with a different outlook on what dental care can be. Sedation dentistry is one service that allows for an elevated experience.
Sedation dentistry is a technique utilized to help patients relax and feel more comfortable during dental procedures. It involves medication that induces a state of relaxation and a decreased awareness of the procedure being performed. This technique is particularly beneficial for patients with dental anxiety or phobias, as it can help alleviate their fears and anxieties. Additionally, sedation dentistry enables dentists to perform more lengthy or complex procedures in a single visit, allowing patients to save time and minimize discomfort.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a safe and effective sedative used to help calm anxious patients and make their dental procedures more comfortable. This odorless gas is administered through a small mask placed over the patient’s nose, and within minutes, they begin to feel relaxed and at ease. Nitrous oxide does not put patients to sleep, so they can still communicate with their dentist throughout the procedure. Once the treatment is complete and the mask is removed, the effects of the gas wear off quickly, allowing patients to drive themselves home. Our highly trained team at The Dental Bar is well-versed in the use of nitrous oxide sedation and takes great care to ensure our V.I.P. patients have a positive and sophisticated experience.
Not only can this make the experience more pleasant, but it can also benefit certain dental procedures. Nitrous oxide can be used for more extensive or advanced dental procedures, such as root canals or extractions. However, nitrous oxide is not just reserved for complex procedures. At The Dental Bar, we recognize that each patient is unique and may have different needs when it comes to their dental health. As such, we offer nitrous oxide as an option for even the most straightforward procedures, such as routine check-ups or simple fillings.
As we strive to provide progressive and effective dental solutions for our clients, oral-conscious sedation takes center stage. This is a type of sedation where the patient takes medication in the form of a pill prior to the dental appointment. Under this sedation, the patient is awake but relaxed, and the level of sedation can be adjusted as needed.
There are several benefits of oral conscious sedation. First and foremost, it helps alleviate anxiety and discomfort during dental procedures. This is particularly beneficial for those who have had negative experiences with dentists in the past or who have a fear of needles, drills, or other dental equipment. It is also helpful for those with a sensitive gag reflex or who have difficulty sitting still during a dental procedure. Oral conscious sedation also makes it possible for patients to undergo longer, more complex procedures without the need for multiple appointments. In fact, patients who opt for oral conscious sedation often report that they have little to no memory of the procedure, making it a comfortable and stress-free experience.
