Anxiety and fear of the dentist and dental treatments is very common. At Monarch Dentistry we strive to make our patient experience as comfortable as possible. We are proud to offer sedation dentistry for fearful patients. Sedation can be used for all services ranging from invasive procedures to simple teeth cleanings.
IV Sedation is used to provide pain relief for more painful dental procedures such as a tooth extraction. An injection of sedative is given to the patient causing the patient to feel drowsy and not feel pain during the procedure.
Nitrous, a sedative gas, is the most common sedation method in dentistry is often referred to as “laughing gas.” Laughing gas is inhaled by the patient causing a happy and elated feeling. Dental laughing gas or nitrous oxide is a form of ‘conscious sedation’, that can help reduce dental anxiety.
