Sedation Dentistry Options
Our San Marcos dentist's office offers the following levels of sedation:
Oral Conscious Sedation
Allred Dental offers oral conscious sedation to help anxious patients relax during treatment. This form of sedation is taken as a pill prior to the procedure and can be used as both a mild and moderate sedative. With mild sedation, patients feel drowsy; for moderate sedation, patients may fall into a light sleep.
Because we know how important it is for patients to feel comfortable, Allred Dental always offers FREE oral conscious sedation with any dental treatment!
Laughing gas, or inhalation sedation, is a form of light sedation and is typically offered to young patients or those with mild anxiety in the dental chair. Laughing gas is a colorless, odor-free gas that is administered through a comfortable breathing mask.
Dr. Allred controls the amount of gas to ensure maximum safety and comfort. With this form of sedation, you can expect to be fully relaxed while still fully awake and able to follow instructions.
Intravenous (IV) sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, is offered to patients with extreme dental anxiety, to those with special healthcare needs, or for those who are set to undergo an oral surgery or long treatment.
IV sedation does not put the patient fully to sleep, but instead uses anti-anxiety medication that is administered directly into the veins to help promote relaxation. Most patients experience relaxation and temporary memory loss, and Dr. Allred will adjust the medication as needed during treatment.
