Knowing More About Sedation
At the Dental Center of Mesa, we offer nitrous oxide and IV sedation options. Both forms provide unique benefits for patients and selecting the form of relaxant best suited for you is important.
Nitrous Oxide, also widely known as laughing gas, is an inhalant that leaves a person in a euphoric state while reducing sensation and focus. Dr. Kalika can quickly reverse the effects of the sedative by having you breathe in oxygen. Nitrous oxide allows patients to return to their daily lives without any hindrance.
IV Sedation is administered intravenously and is a way to deliver medicine directly to the bloodstream. The effects of this relaxant are practically immediate and make patients feel like they have slept through the entire procedure even though they remain responsive. For this sedation method, patients must bring a trusted person to take them from the practice after treatment is complete.
