What is Conscious Sedation in Dentistry?

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry enhances the look of teeth, gums, and smiles. It differs from traditional dentistry which focuses on dental problems like cavities and gum disease. 

The aim of cosmetic dentistry is to create a more attractive smile. Procedures include teeth whitening, dental crowns, implants, bonding, gum contouring, orthodontics, Porcelain Veneers and smile makeovers.

Smile Makeover By Our Cosmetic Dentists

A smile makeover is a series of cosmetic procedures used to enhance the smile. Our cosmetic dentist carefully tailors the treatment plan while taking into consideration the individual needs and desires, as well as the overall health and functionality of the teeth and gums.

What is Conscious Sedation in Dentistry?

Conscious sedation in dentistry helps patients with dental anxiety or phobias. Unlike general anesthesia, it keeps you awake and aware. The procedure ensures a patient is relaxed and comfortable during dental treatment.

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry, also known as ‘sleep dentistry’, utilizes medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. However, it is important to note that most patients remain awake, except for those who are under general anesthesia. The sedation levels are – minimal, moderate, deep and general anesthesia.

Learn More About Conscious Sedation

Conscious sedation may be a suitable choice for the following individuals:

  • Those who are restless and have difficulty remaining still in the dentist’s chair.
  • People who experience tooth sensitivity or severe dental phobia.
  • Individuals with a low pain threshold.
  • Those who have a strong gag reflex.
  • People who fear needles or suffer from claustrophobia.

Conscious Oral Sedation

Oral sedation can vary from minimal to moderate, depending on the dosage. Minimal sedation involves taking a pill, an hour before the procedure. This pill induces drowsiness but keeps the patient awake. Moderate sedation, commonly used in sedation dentistry, involves a higher dosage. Some patients may even fall asleep during the procedure but can be easily awakened with a gentle shake.

frequently asked questions

Sedation can be delivered to patients in three main forms: inhalation, oral, and intravenous (IV). Inhalation involves the use of nitrous oxide gas, commonly known as laughing gas, which is inhaled through the nose to induce a sense of euphoria. Oral sedation is administered in the form of a pill taken an hour before the appointment, resulting in a more relaxed state. IV sedation, on the other hand, allows for deep sedation and immediate effects, with the ability to adjust the level of sedation as needed during the procedure.

Conscious sedation in dentistry does not induce complete sleep like general anesthesia. It aims to relax and make patients drowsy, reducing awareness during the procedure while keeping them conscious and responsive.

Dentists employ different medications and techniques to achieve conscious sedation in patients, tailoring them based on individual requirements and preferences. Common methods include oral sedatives, inhaled nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and local anesthesia.
