The Purpose of Dental Sedation

Do you feel anxious or fearful about going to the dentist? If so, you’re not alone. Many people experience dental fear and avoid receiving necessary dental care, which can lead to more serious dental problems. At Perimeter Dental, we understand your concerns and offer sedation dentistry to help you feel comfortable during your visit.

Our practice provides a welcoming and positive atmosphere, with comfortable amenities and minimally invasive dental technology to help ease your worries. We want you to receive the necessary dental care and enjoy your dental visit!

We offer customized sedation dentistry services to suit your unique dental fear, helping you feel relaxed and at ease. We also offer dental sedation to help you combine multiple treatments into one efficient appointment, reducing your needed visits.

Perimeter Dental offers two types of dental sedation: oral sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Trust our experienced dental care team to restate your fears and help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

  • What is laughing gas and what does it do?

    Laughing gas, known as nitrous oxide, is a colorless and odorless gas often used as a local sedation method. It is highly effective and safe, and its effects can be quickly reversed. Due to its widely recognized safety record, it is a popular choice for dental sedation.

  • What types of anesthesia are used for dental work?

    The two most common types of anesthesia used in dental procedures are local anesthesia and general anesthesia. Local anesthesia is administered directly to the treated area, usually the gums surrounding the affected tooth. On the other hand, general anesthesia provides a more profound experience and typically results in no memory of the procedure. It is generally used for more invasive procedures, such as tooth extraction, dental implants, or other surgical procedures, and the patient is unconscious during the process.

  • Is sedation dentistry safe?

    Sedation dentistry is generally safe when administered by a trained and qualified dental professional. The dentist evaluates the patient’s medical history and monitors vital signs throughout the procedure to ensure their safety.

  • Can children undergo sedation dentistry?

    Yes, sedation dentistry can be used for children who experience dental anxiety or have difficulty cooperating during dental procedures. Pediatric dentists are trained to administer sedation safely for children and will assess the child’s individual needs and medical history before proceeding.

  • Is sedation dentistry covered by dental insurance?

    In some cases, sedation dentistry may be covered by dental insurance, especially for certain procedures or for patients with specific medical conditions. Patients should check with their insurance provider to determine coverage eligibility and any out-of-pocket costs.

  • Will I be unconscious or asleep when I receive laughing gas during a dental procedure?

    No, laughing gas does not put patients to sleep. Instead, it induces a state of relaxation and mild sedation while allowing them to remain conscious and responsive throughout the procedure.
