Typically, the dentist selects the best option depending on the procedure, anxiety levels, and medical history of the patient. Sedation can be used for treatments such as root canals, dental implants, periodontics, tooth extraction, or other invasive procedures, as well as general appointments if the patient experiences symptoms of anxiety.
Naim, a West Los Angeles, CA dental implants expert. "There are many options when it comes to sedation dentistry. Dentists can provide low levels of sedation for those who experience lower levels of anxiety or have fears towards less invasive procedures, or we can just as easily as provide sedation to help patients through more invasive procedures."
Sedation therapy holds patients in a relaxed, tension-free state, while maintaining a low level of consciousness so patients can cooperate with the practitioner. In most cases, patients feel as if only moments have passed by even in lengthy procedures, and they have little to no recollection of the procedure said Dr. Naim.
It is important to discuss the various sedation options with your dentist before treatment. Patients are advised to have transportation arrangements made after the procedure, and in some cases it may be beneficial to have the practitioner monitor the patient for a few hours after the patient regains consciousness.
