Is Dental Sedation Safe?

Yes, dental sedation is safe when administered by qualified professionals in the appropriate setting. At Global Dent Dental Clinic, we ensure that all our professionals are highly trained and that strict safety protocols are followed.

Is Dental Sedation Suitable for Everyone?

Most patients can benefit from dental sedation, but not everyone is an ideal candidate. It is important to discuss your complete medical history with the dentist to determine the best option. Patients with certain medical conditions or those taking specific medications may need a more detailed evaluation.

How Long Does the Effect of Sedation Last?

The duration of sedation effects depends on the type used. Nitrous oxide dissipates quickly, allowing patients to resume their normal activities almost immediately. Oral and intravenous sedation can last several hours, and general anesthesia can have residual effects that persist for a day or more.

What Does Sedation Feel Like?

The experience varies depending on the type of sedation. With nitrous oxide, patients usually feel mild euphoria and relaxation. Oral sedation may induce drowsiness and a sense of calm. Intravenous sedation can make patients feel sleepy and less aware of their surroundings, and general anesthesia will make them completely unconscious.

Will I Need an Escort After the Procedure?

Yes, it is advisable to have an escort for most types of moderate to deep sedation, as there may be residual effects of drowsiness and lack of coordination that prevent the patient from driving or performing certain activities safely.

What Procedures Require Dental Sedation?

Any dental procedure can benefit from sedation, but it is more common in invasive procedures such as extractions, implants, and root canal treatments. It is also useful for patients with dental phobia who need less invasive procedures like cleanings or fillings.
