Sedation Dentistry can be called by many names like comfort, relaxation, conscious, sleep, and even twilight dentistry. However, whatever it is called, it works by providing relaxation to patients during dental treatments to make them more comfortable. It is highly beneficial to patients with special needs and has developed anxiety or phobia which can get in the way of getting the right treatments. Painless Dentistry provides safer and comfortable dental treatments for patients with the help of Twilight Dentistry.
What is Twilight Dentistry?
It is an advanced form of dental sedation that uses a combination of sedatives and pain-relieving drugs to provide calm relaxation during the entire dental procedure. The doses can also be controlled depending on the type of treatment and duration to ensure that the effect would last throughout the procedure.
Twilight Sedation Options at Painless Dentistry
- It is a type of sedation that can benefit those who are afraid of needles and those who feel discomfort with the sight of the syringe. An oral medication would be provided an hour before for deep relaxation and comfort while allowing the patient to be conscious. The medication is easy to swallow and safe.
- It can also be referred to as Laughing Gas which uses Nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen. The sedative is inhaled by the patient through a mask that is placed over the nose. Like oral sedation, this can also be beneficial to those patients that are afraid of needles and syringe. The gas can help the patient relax, and the dentist can even control the amount to provide effective relaxation for the whole duration of the procedure. The gas also tends to wear off quickly compared to other sedation which makes it ideal for patients that went alone.
