Sedation DentistryAre you a full-time employee, full-time parent, or full-time student with no time for dental care? Often busy lifestyles and demanding schedules prevent our patients from receiving the dental care they need because they are unable to take off of work or school. Ignoring your dental health can only cause more strain on your already full schedule later when more oral health issues arise. If you are having difficulty fitting in dental care in your busy schedule, Dr. StefanMoiceanu, our Richmond dentist, has a solution.

Too Busy for Dental Work?

Sedation dentistry is most commonly associated with helping ease the dental fears of apprehensive patients, allowing them to get the dental treatment they need. However, sedation dentistry can also benefit patients who need several dental procedures completed in one visit. With sedation dentistry, our busiest patients can take off less time from work while experiencing the same quality of dental care. Here’s how nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation can help you.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

One of the most common sedation dentistry methods offered by our Richmond dentist is nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. The nitrous oxide gas when inhaled produces a soft, warm feeling throughout your body, gently coaxing your mind to relax. You can remain fully conscious and in control while experiencing comfortable dental care. This is helpful if patients must undergo longer dental treatments when completing a variety of procedures at once.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives are pills taken by mouth which provide a deeper state of drowsiness than nitrous oxide. Like laughing gas, oral sedatives allow patients to stay conscious while in a state of relaxation. In some cases, patients may not remember the events of the procedure after the sedation effects have worn off. This type of sedation dentistry is also beneficial for allowing our Richmond, CA, dentist to complete a variety of dental treatments in one appointment.
