Dental appointments are stressful for some people. For some it can get so bad that they avoid the dentist altogether – not a good idea, since it puts their dental health at risk. At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville we provide sedation dentistry, so those who need extra help can get the dental care they need.
Sedation dentistry is a way to help patients relax during dental visits. You may hear the term “sleep dentistry” sometimes, but that isn’t really accurate, because most types will not make you sleep.
We offer two kinds of sedation:
- Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry with great success for more than a hundred years. It acts quickly, wears off quickly, and is very effective. You may know it by the term, “laughing gas.”
- Oral concscious sedation involves taking a sedative that will put you in a deeply relaxed state. You will not sleep, but you will be very groggy, and need someone to drive you to and from our office.
