A simple and non-invasive technique
The use of this technique in dentistry results in a state of conscious sedation. This means that the patient will be able to respond throughout the procedure, while being able to manage the anxiety associated with a visit to the dentist’s office. Conscious sedation is a pertinent choice for a number of medical preseasors from the simple ones, such as a dental cleaning, to the complex ones such as implant surgery. For more detailed information regarding conscious sedation indications and contraindications, please speak to your dentist.
The best thing about conscious sedation is that needles are not necessary! All that is required is for the child to breathe through a mask, that is placed on your nose. The gas starts working a few seconds after and hits its peak effect after 3 minutes. Once the administration is interrupted, patients return regain full conscious after about 3-5 minutes. However, the patient can only be discharged after the doctor’s evaluation.
