How Does Dental Sedation Work?

The Key to Pain Free Dentistry in Carlsbad

Woman from Encinitas was thrilled to experience pain free dentistry using oral sedation in Carlsbad.

If you experience fear at the dentist and are looking for pain free dentistry, dental sedation is an excellent choice. You may wonder, how does dental sedation work?

In our La Costa Dental Excellence office, we usually recommend oral sedation, which involves giving you a small pill you take about an hour before your actual dental procedure. You will need to have someone drive you to the dentist office, as oral sedation makes you drowsy by the time you arrive. Once you are relaxed in the dental chair, Dr. Dankworth, practicing pain free dentistry methods, will then take care of your specific dental needs. Because oral sedation relaxes you so effectively, once your procedure is completed, you will be driven home, as you will still be too drowsy to drive.

“I didn’t think sedation would be as good for me as roughing though it. Wrong! I had a pretty extensive work-over and it was a breeze. Rather than a stress filled day before during and after, I was relaxed all day and the work is now behind me. They have it down to a science!”
– Gerry T.

Another method of sedation pain free dentistry often used is laughing gas. Laughing gas provides you with a relaxed feeling. The gas is administered via a mask that is placed over the nose. Dr. Dankworth allows you to become completely relaxed prior to beginning your pain-free dentistry dental procedure.

You will be completely relaxed and comfortable during the entire procedure.
