Can you ask the dentist to sedate you?

If you’re feeling nervous or would prefer to have little recollection of a dental visit, then ask about dental sedation. Depending on the dental procedure, like oral surgery, this request may be able to be accommodated. Three methods that dentists often use for patients include nitrous oxide, IV, and full oral sedation. Our team is happy to explain each option available to you at your appointment.

What is sedation like at the dentist?

Opting for sedation at the dentist can relieve dental anxiety and discomfort, allowing the dentist to perform the dental procedure promptly and effectively. Patients that receive dental sedation become calm, relaxed, and have stress and anxiety fade away. The process of nitrous oxide for sedation, also known as laughing gas, is quick and easy. When you sit in the chair, a small mask that fits over the nose will get placed, and then you’ll inhale normally until the nitrous oxide takes effect, and before you know it, the dental procedure will be over!
