Sedation Services offered at Advanced Dental and Implant Center, Orange Park, FL
We offer a range of sedation options to make sure that our patients are comfortable during their appointment. These include:
Your comfort is our priority. Whether you’ve come to us for a simple cleaning or a tooth extraction, we understand that you may be nervous. In order to help you relax, we offer oral sedation, which comes in the form of a small pill similar to anti-anxiety medication. Before your appointment, we would require you to confirm that you will be accompanied by someone who can take you home after treatment.
Once sedation has been administered, you will be escorted to the treatment room, where Dr.Strout will offer you a warm blanket and make you comfortable before starting the procedure. Our team will do their best to ensure your safety and health throughout the course of the treatment.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that relieves stress and induces relaxation for those with mild to moderate dental anxiety. For administering nitrous oxide sedation, a small breathing mask is placed on your nose, which controls the depth of your sedation. Once the treatment is complete, the nitrous oxide gas is turned off and you will start feeling normal just like the way you were before the procedure.
Intravenous sedation is the most efficient sedative option and is generally administered during high-level or lengthy procedures such as dental implants and bone or gum grafting. IV Sedation is given through a vein in the patient’s hand or arm, putting them in a state of deep relaxation until the procedure is over. Because this is a deep sedation, we request you to be accompanied by someone who can take you home after the treatment.
