What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry is the state-of-the-art, comprehensive approach to dentistry that involves the use of sedatives to minimize discomfort during dental procedures. With sedation dentistry, just about any dental procedure including full mouth reconstructions and smile makeovers can now be performed with virtually no pain.
IV Sedation in Dentistry
Why would I want IV Sedation?
IV sedation or intravenous sedation provides pain relief, during otherwise painful procedures.IV sedation will make you drowsy and unaware of pain during a procedure or surgery. How will you feel after IV sedation? You or a family member will wake up feeling rested and without any negative memories of the dental procedure. IV sedation dentistry is a specialty that provides the ultimate comfort during any complex dental treatment.
Less than one percent of dentists in California are licensed to perform IV sedation. At Dr. Zak Family Dentistry our select team of experienced cosmetic dentists and anesthesiologists, however, have a proven track record of safe and successful IV sedation that spans over twenty years.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Dentistry
Why is Nitrous Oxide Sedation the most commonly used method of sedation in dentistry?
Nitrous oxide, or more commonly referred to as “laughing gas” is the most commonly used method of sedation in dentistry because it causes a calming effect which not only relaxes you or a family member within a few seconds but also provides apain relief from any dental procedure. At Dr. Zak Family Dentistry, we want to make sure you and your family is comfortable during all pleasant and not so pleasant treatments.
Oral Sedation in Dentistry
Why can’t I drive myself to and from my dental appointment if I opt for Oral Sedation?
With Oral Sedation, you or your family member is given a sedative pill to take by the mouth the night before the appointment and/or a few hours prior to the dental visit. By the time of the appointment, you or your loved one will be relaxed and will remain calm and pain free during the entire procedure. Since you or your family member will already be under the effect of the medication on your way to the Dr. Zak Family Dentistry office, please make sure to asks someone to drive you to the office on the day of your appointment.
