Dental Anesthesia Options at New Smile Now

Oral Sedation

As its name suggests, oral sedation dentistry takes the form of a pill which you take before your appointment. Our implant dentists will prescribe this pill to you and provide you with instructions for when to take it. With this form of dental anesthesia, you will need someone to drive you home after your procedure.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is also called “laughing gas,” and it’s one of the most common methods of sedation dentistry. You inhale it through a mask prior to your treatment, and you’ll be awake and alert throughout your procedure. However, you’ll be relaxed the whole time. One of the benefits of nitrous oxide is that it wears off quickly after administration, so you’ll be able to drive yourself home.

IV Sedation

IV sedation dentistry puts you in a sleep-like state. Many patients remain awake through their procedure but don’t remember it. This is particularly useful for patients who require many tooth extractions or complicated work. Because of the lasting effects of IV sedation, you’ll need someone to drive you home from your appointment.

General Anesthesia

We are one of the few dental offices in northern California that provides general anesthesia for sedation dentistry. This combination of medications renders you completely unconscious, and you’ll be monitored by an anesthesiologist the whole time.

Don’t Neglect Your Oral Health

If you need extensive dental work but get nervous with the sights and sounds of a dentist’s office, dental anesthesia may be just what you need. Skipping needed dental care can lead to long-term problems and even more complex dental work down the line, and small issues can get worse with time if you neglect them. The best way to reduce the amount of time you spend in the chair is to get treated for issues early, and sedation dentistry is one of the best ways to make this happen for some people. Learn how our sedation solutions can help restore your smile without fear.
