Dr. McMahon on Sedation Options
If you’re ready to relieve your dental anxiety and get the dental care you need, call our trusted Edgwood, KY dentists in Edgewood Dental Care to learn about your dental sedation options today!
Unlike many dentists who use outside specialists to provide sedation, our Edgewood, KY dentists are highly trained in administering all types of sedation in-house for your added convenience!
Our dental office is a judgment-free zone, and our Edgewood, KY dentists and compassionate team of dental professionals will do everything we can to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed during your visit.
To sedate you with nitrous oxide, you will breathe in a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a small nose piece. In no time, you will feel light and relaxed. Although you will be awake and able to respond to us, you may not remember much of your procedure.
Nitrous oxide wears off quickly, so you will feel back to normal right after the procedure. This also allows you to drive yourself from our office.
Before your visit, we will give you a prescription for a pill that you will take before your appointment. By doing so, you will arrive at our office already calm and stress-free about the procedure.
Oral sedation may wear off by the end of your appointment, or it can last a little longer. You may also feel a little groggy and sleepy before the effects have fully worn off. You will need a ride to and from the office.
IV sedation is the deepest level of sedation. This makes it an ideal way to relax patients who are extremely anxious or have dental phobia. We can also use it if you have a bad gag reflex or need several procedures done comfortably in one visit.
We will administer your IV sedation, and you will immediately begin to feel relaxed as the medication takes effect. We are certified to know exactly how to monitor you throughout your treatment.
You will need to have someone drive you home as the sedation wears off.
