Sedation Dentistry Options
At Bonham Dental Arts, we can offer mild light forms of dental sedation to help ease patient anxiety and discomfort. Our sedation dentistry options include:
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a great option for patients who experience minimal dental anxiety. Laughing gas can help reduce stress, anxiety and nervousness while in the dentist's chair. The nitrous oxide gas is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through through a non-invasive breathing mask to provide a sense of calm and comfort. If you choose to add this light dental sedation option to your procedure, our team will carefully control the amount of gas released to ensure optimal safety and comfort!
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation can help ease moderate to severe anxiety for our patients. Our dentists are experienced in using aware sedation agents, and can work with a Registered Nurse to supervise our oral sedation treatments. With this treatment option, you may feel more relaxed during your appointment while remaining awake enough to answer questions.
IV sedation is a safe and effective alternative to general anesthesia, that is typically prescribed for patients who have special healthcare needs or who expereince severe dental anxiety. When IV sedation is administered, its sedation effects will usually last 6 hours, and leave you with little to no memory of your dental appointment. You'll be restored and back to normal activities within 24 hours!
Our staff at Bonham Dental Arts are highly trained and equipped to administer and supervise the use of dental sedation medications. In 2007, Dr. Carey Bonham completed a mini residency in IV sedation at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, and is certified to administer safe, conscious IV sedation.
