The following types of sedation are used in dentistry:
- Nitrous Oxide Also known as “laughing gas”. Nitrous is combined with Oxygen through a mask that’s placed over your nose and helps you relax. . This is the only form of sedation where you may be able to drive yourself home after the procedure because it wears off quickly.
- Oral For minimal purposes, you can take a pill. Typically, taken an hour before the procedure. You will be awake but drowsy. This type of anesthesia is what is most commonly associated with dentistry.
- IV Moderate AnesthesiaYou receive the sedative drug through a vein, so it goes to work more quickly. This method allows the dentist to continually adjust the levels and is completely reversible.
- Deep Anesthesia with an AnesthesiologistDeep Anesthesia is administered by an Anesthesiologist that comes to our office and is onsite administering and monitoring anesthesia and vital levels. Medications are administered via I.V.
Regardless of which type of sedation you choose, you will typically also need local anesthetic in the area that Dr. Goehring is treating.
