Three Sedation Options to Help you Relax

Dr. Barotz is trained in the use of three different types of anesthesia. Whether you choose gas, a pill or an IV, we can assure that you will be comfortable and relaxed during your treatment.

Inhalation Consciousness Sedation

The most common form of sedation in dentistry is Nitrous Oxide, also known as “laughing gas." If you elect this form of sedation, Dr. Barotz will place a mask over your nose to administer the sedative. You will feel lightheaded and you may fall asleep during treatment.

Advantages to Inhalation Consciousness Sedation

  • Works well for mild cases of anxiety
  • Takes effect quickly
  • Patients recover quickly and can operate a vehicle after the appointment
  • Very few side effects

Disadvantages of Inhalation Consciousness Sedation

  • Patients with high anxiety may need a stronger level of sedation
  • A mask is placed over the patients nose

Oral Conscious Sedation

With Oral Conscious Sedation, one or more pills are taken an hour before your treatment, which will make you feel relaxed and somewhat sleepy. You will, however, remain awake, and will be able to interact with and respond to the dentist. The sedative effects will last through your dental treatment.

Even patients with a moderate to severe gag reflex will find that their gag response is gone when they are sedated. Oral conscious sedation makes possible dental treatment that was previously impossible for many patients.

Advantages to Oral Sedation

  • All you have to do is swallow a pill
  • No needles involved

Disadvantages of Oral Sedation

  • The level of sedation is not easily changed
  • The effect is not immediate
  • You will not be able to safely operate a vehicle after the appointment
  • Some degree of amnesia is common

IV Sedation

IV Sedation requires specialized training and certification to be able to administer. With IV Sedation, medications are administered directly into the blood stream using a needle, and take effect almost immediately.

Advantages to IV Sedation

  • Immediate effect
  • Doctor can easily add more when needed

Disadvantages of IV Sedation

  • Requires a needle
  • Additional cost
