Pain Free Dentistry With Oral Sedation And IV Sedation Solutions Near Moore OK
“Pain free dentistry” is no longer an oxymoron. Sedation dentistry has made it possible for millions who would typically avoid the dentist at all costs to not only visit the dentist but experience pain free dentistry for themselves. Sedation Dentistry involves the use of sedatives to help those who experience high stress, anxiety and/or pain during dental visits to feel completely calm and comfortable. We offer pain free dentistry to the Oklahoma City, Moore OK and Norman OK communities in the form of three sedation options: nitrous oxide, oral sedation and intravenous sedation. See below for a brief description of each technique and their respective benefits.
How does Nitrous Oxide work?
Nitrous Oxide is probably the most familiar of the three pain free dentistry options among our patients in Oklahoma City, many may even have experience with it already. The nickname for nitrous oxide is “laughing gas”. It is administered through a breathing mask (no needles) and is a gentle and effective sedation option. Nitrous Oxide has been utilized with success for decades and is a great option for those who just need the “edge taken off” during their visits to our office near Norman OK.
How does Oral Sedation work?
Oral sedation involves the use of a sedative in pill form which is administered orally. Oral sedation really is that easy… you take an oral sedation pill and you will fill completely relaxed during your treatment. Oral sedation has a great track record of safety and effectiveness and is also a needle free technique.
How does Intravenous Sedation work?
Intravenous sedation (A.K.A. IV sedation) is for those that need an even stronger sedative to help them feel comfortable during treatment. Intravenous sedation is administered through a needle placed on the arm or hand. Intravenous sedation is a great sedation option for those with the most intense dental phobio, low pain threshold or other acute anxieties.
