While it is common practice to be sedated by doctors for medical procedures, for some time there has been the misconception that routine dental work is not uncomfortable enough to justify the use of sedation.
For many of patients seeking a more relaxed experience, dental sedation provides a way to perform any dental treatment without pain or stress, under very safe conditions.
It has proven to be a safe and effective option for a variety of patients and procedures.
SEDATION DENTISTRY MEDELLIN
Our practice has focused to a great extent on providing Painless dentistry in Medellin for patients suffering from dental anxiety and dental phobia.
Depending on the extent of the work being done and the needs of the individual patient, we offer 3 different methods of sedation:
Nitrous Oxide sedation ~ Also known as inhalation sedation or “laughing gas,” this is one step up from the oral sedative.
A mask is placed over the patient’s nose, and the flow level is adjusted by the dentist until the patient is comfortable.
One advantage of this method is that as soon as the dental work is complete, the patient receives 100% oxygen and the feeling of sedation is gone within a few minutes.
Oral sedation. The easiest way to achieve a state of relaxation while keeping consciousness is by using a pill that induces sleep.
Most of the times patients fall asleep during the procedure, so they don’t feel anxiety. at the same time, by means of a secondary effect, it potentiates the effect of the local anesthetic, and reduces the sensation of the instruments used.
Oral sedation is the easiest form to provide Painless dentistry in Medellin
Intravenous Conscious Sedation (IV) ~ This type of sedation is ideal for patients with extreme anxiety when it comes to dental procedures, or for those who are having complex dental work that takes a longer period of time to complete.
Although the patient is conscious, he or she remembers virtually nothing about the dental work being performed.
