Sedation Dentistry Options
Our Wenatchee Valley dentist office offers the following levels of sedation:
Oral Conscious Sedation
To help anxious patients stay relaxed during their treatment, Webb Dental Care offers oral conscious sedation taken as a pill prior to the procedure. Used as a mild or moderate sedative, oral conscious sedation can cause patients to feel drowsy or even fall into a light sleep.
Laughing gas, an inhalation sedative or inhalation sedation, presents one of the safest and easiest sedation techniques available for nearly any procedure. Patients of all ages may benefit from a customized dose simply obtained by breathing in and out.
Dr. Webb always carefully controls the amount of gas administered, ensuring optimal safety and comfort for every patient. Patients who undergo inhalation sedation typically experience complete relaxation while remaining fully awake.
Intravenous (IV) sedation is also known as sleep dentistry and is typically offered to patients who experience extreme dental anxiety, to those with special healthcare needs, or for those who will need to undergo a longer treatment or oral surgery.
IV sedation does not put the patient fully to sleep but instead uses anti-anxiety medication that is administered directly into the veins to promote relaxation. Most patients will experience relaxation and temporary memory loss. Throughout your treatment, Dr. Webb will adjust the medication as needed during treatment.
If nearly falling asleep during your dental treatment and waking up at the end sounds like an ideal solution for your needs, ask us about IV sedation!
