Types of Sedation Dentistry
At Napa Valley Dental Group, Dr. Bhullar and his team provide several kinds of sedation options that we may recommend to patients, depending on their dental care requirements and health history:
Intravenous sedation (IV) used to be a common procedure in the past where a sedative is injected into the vein on the arm of the patient. Its sedation effects are proven to be safe, efficient, and quick to take effect. IV sedation is also ideal for procedures that may last for several hours, providing our dentist with the option to re-administer the medication or adjust the sedation levels as needed.
Laughing Gas Sedation
Laughing gas sedation is inhaled, to offer a mild type of sedation that promotes relaxation for a short period of time. Laughing gas sedation is most suitable for our patients who suffer from panic attacks or dental phobia.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Our Napa dentists find oral conscious sedation to be the most common form of comfort dentistry used. Oral conscious sedation can produce a mild to moderate sedative effect, delivered through a pill taken about an hour before your procedure.
Our dentists can offer general anesthesia for patients who are undergoing surgical procedures such as impacted wisdom teeth extractions.
