Are you afraid of visiting the dentist? Does the sound of drills, machines, and dentists talking about your teeth give you anxiety? If so, the dental practice of Jeff Jones, DDS offers sedation dentistry that will make all of your fears disappear.
We offer oral sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation, and Dr. Jones and Dr. Buck will find the perfect anesthetic for you and help you get through your appointment with ease. Oral, nitrous and IV sedation have different characteristics. Those differences include:
- Nitrous oxide: This form of sedation involves a safe and effective element that is combined with oxygen. You will simply breathe through a small mask that releases the anesthetic. It will then begin to make you feel relaxed and tingly. You can typically drive yourself home after nitrous oxide.
- Oral sedation:This procedure involves taking a pill before your treatment at the dental office. The pill will make you a little light-headed, but it will keep you composed and carefree during the entire process. Depending on the type of medication used, it is possible you won’t remember any of the treatment. You will need a driver to take you home and be with you for a few hours after the appointment.
- IV sedation:This type of sedation involves the insertion of the sedative drug through a vein. This helps the sedative take effect quickly. The dentist is able to adjust the level of sedation and make sure you are as
comfortable as possible. This will require the coordination of a dental anesthesiologist during your procedure.
