Sedation dentistry is a practice which is designed to help people relax and feel at ease when oral procedures are being performed on their teeth. There are several levels of sedation which are available at South Tulsa Dental.
Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is used to treat patients with any fear of coming to the dentist. A mask is placed over the nose and patient begins to breathe a mixture of sedative gas and oxygen. The process is safe and allows the patient to return to normal daily activity after their appointment.
Another type is conscious sedation where patients take a pill one hour prior to treatment. This puts the patient to sleep and requires a driver for the patient after treatment. It is totally safe and effective.
With sedation dentistry at South Tulsa Dental, even the most fearful people can receive the best dental care possible. While costs may not always be covered by insurance, deep sedation or general anesthesia often is included because it’s considered to be a medical necessity.
