Sedation dentistry is a very useful tool, and it helps you get the treatment you need even if you’re nervous about your appointment at Coronado Dental Associates. We use nitrous oxide to keep you calm and comfortable. If you’re wondering what to expect if you get sedation during your appointment at our office, read on and get all of the details you need.
Nitrous oxide sedation is really simple, and requires minimal preparation on your part. Here’s a quick overview of what happens before, during, and after your treatment at our office in Coronado.
Absolutely not. We offer nitrous oxide sedation at our office, and we also use powerful numbing drugs to numb your mouth during treatment. The combination of sedation and numbing means that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort at all.
Yes. Nitrous oxide has pretty mild effects, so you’ll be fully aware of what’s happening during your appointment. You can respond to questions, interact with our team normally, and follow commands without any issues, and you’ll remember your whole appointment.
Not at all. Unlike some deeper methods of sedation, nitrous oxide won’t leave you feeling groggy. After just a few minutes, you’ll feel totally normal, and you can get back to your daily routine. You can even drive yourself home or back to work/school after nitrous oxide, which is not possible with any other type of sedation.
