What is Dental Sedation?

Dental Sedation makes use of medications to help patients relax during dental procedures.

Sedation Dentistry  has come a long way and is very popular in the practice of dentistry. It is used broadly and refers to the way dentists manage patient pain and anxiety during dental appointments. Fear of dentistry is real, and because of this, individuals either avoid coming to the dentist or delay treatment until it is unbearable. 

At Clear Dental Studio we can provide a comfortable level of sedation for almost everyone. Our Broomfield office specializes in helping fearful patients receive the dental care that they truly deserve and need. Dr. Martha Ha and her staff have obtained specialized training and certification in Intravenous sedation to provide all patients the level of sedation they require.

What types of Sedation Dentistry does our Broomfield clinic offer?

IV Sedation Dentistry

Intravenous (IV) dental sedation, also known as moderate or conscious sedation, is performed on patients with high fear and anxiety. During IV dental sedation, medications are administered directly into the blood stream resulting in immediate sedative results. The greatest advantage to this technique is that the medication can be titrated and allows the dentist to continually adjust the levels of sedation as needed. It is also more effective than oral medications and allows for a more profound amnesic result.

  • Unlike Clear Dental Studio, most offices do not offer this technique directly, as not all dentists are trained to perform IV sedation. Often times if an office does offer this service, they will bring in an external with specialized training to perform this level of sedation. This can incur extra charges for the patient.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is the oldest and most commonly used technique. It is also the most convenient and economical method used in dentistry. In this method, patients will take medications by mouth. Oral sedation does not always offer the same level of sedation as IV sedation. Oral sedation can be unpredictable and frequently insufficient for most patients wanting a deeper level of sedation. It is usually not enough for those with high fear or anxiety. For patients who have minimal to moderate anxiety or those who might need a slight boost, this is a great option for you.

Nitrous Sedation

Nitrous sedation also known as “laughing gas” is a safe and effective means of managing pain and anxiety in dentistry. It is immediately reversible and has little to no side effects when used appropriately. Some potential side effects can result with high nitrous amounts, such as: headaches, shivering, sweating, nausea/vomiting and fatigue. Nitrous sedation is the safest and preferred method of sedation for children.
