A Better Idea of Sleep Dentistry
Sleep dentistry, also known as sedation dentistry, involves receiving comprehensive dental treatment in a dental or hospital setting under IV sedation administered by a licensed anesthesiologist, M.D., while the dentist provides the dental treatment.
Determining If You Qualify
The best candidates for this procedure are patients who experience high-anxiety when undergoing any type of dental treatment. It is also beneficial for patients with disorders, such as a hyperactive gag reflex. Sedation can be used for all types of dental procedures, ranging from invasive procedures to simple teeth cleanings. How the procedure is used typically depends on the severity of the fear in patients.
Common types of sedation used in dentistry include:
- Oral sedation
- Deep sedation and general anesthesia
- IV moderate sedation
- Inhaled minimal sedation
People who have had negative experiences at the dentist are more inclined to receive dental treatment under sedation.
